9780091878528: Coffee House to Cyber Market: 200 Years of the London Stock Exchange

Coffee House to Cyber Market is an illustrated history of the London Stock Exchange, one of the City's most important financial institutions, specially written to commemorate its bicentenary in 2001. Beginning with its origins in London's coffee houses and the founding of the first permanent Stock Exchange building in Capel Court, the book charts the major events in the history of the Exchange, the London stock market and the firms and characters which composed it. Episodes such as the 'railway mania' of the 1850s, the mining boom which preceded the Boer War, the fortunes of the Stock Exchange in two world wars, and 'Big Bang' and the internet revolution of recent times are brought to life, with a wealth of anecdotes and contemporary descriptions. The book is illustrated with a rich collection of images from the Exchange's own archives, portraits, newspaper photographs and cartoons.
