Messengers

Broad Street and Exchange Place, circa 1920

Broad Street and Exchange Place, circa 1920

In this black and white photo, a messenger on the rooftop overlooks the curbmarket activity in Broad Street. This market handled stocks of companies too small to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange, and eventually grew up to be the American Stock Exchange. At the time of this photo, they were known at the New York Curb Market, and shortly after this photo was taken, they moved indoors to a site on Greenwich Street.

Messengers inside the New York Stock Exchange, 1930

Messengers inside the New York Stock Exchange, 1930

Messengers at the end of the trading day on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange write down orders.  The floor surrounding station number four is littered with slips of paper.  Aside from the three young men working overtime, the cathedral of commerce looks entirely deserted.
