I was looking at the dictionary meaning of 'traditionally' and it was given as :
traditionally-according to tradition;in a traditional manner;
But when I was looking at the following sentences I just couldn't fit them into the definition given above. Please help me

Goldman Sachs has traditionally been the highest-paying investment bank on Wall Street.
The police can no longer depend on support from the Conservative Party, traditionally seen as a firm friend.
Does 'traditionally' here mean historically? or for a long time? I want to know in what sense 'traditionally' is being used here?
I can't understand the dictionary meaning to these sentences. Could anyone be so kind as to explain to me clearly how traditionally is being used here? I would be grateful to them.
