Consider them the “elder statesmen” of the Fortune 500.

These are the 13 companies on this year’s list that have been around the longest—all of them for more than 150 years. Unsurprisingly, these are big, iconic corporations you know well—like Colgate Palmolive and DuPont—and, also unsurprisingly, many of them are banking giants.

Tip a cap to these veterans. And enjoy the vintage photos to match their age.
