New York Stock Exchange
The Stock Exchange's present home on Wall Street did not open until 1903, but trading in stocks began well before that.

Today, people trade hundreds of millions of shares electronically as well as by the floor broker system.

We thought something terrible had happened but they said that is how it is every day. The building is beautiful from the outside, though, and worthy of taking a few pictures.
