Stock Exchange building, Pistoia

Michelucci, Giovanni (1891-1990)

Lonja de la Seda (Silk Exchange), Valencia

NOTES: The initials of the photographer on the rear of the photograph appear to be Ian Mcullum, but the reference is consistent with Ivor and Ivy De Wolfe.

Old Town Hall, High Street, Liverpool: detail of the dome

Foster, John (c. 1759-1827)
NOTES: The Old Town Hall was built as Liverpool's Exchange by John Wood the Elder in 1749-1754. James Wyatt designed various extensions, notably the round dome which replaced Wood's square one in 1802. The building was gutted by fire in 1795 and was reconstructed within the surviving shell under the supervision of John Foster. The portico was added by Foster in 1811.

Corn Exchange, Leeds: detail of ceiling

Alsop & Lyall
NOTES: The Corn Exchange by Cuthbert Brodrick (1863) was converted into a shopping centre by Alsop & Lyall in 1989-1990.

Raised relief invitation to the stone laying ceremony for the new Royal Exchange, Threadneedle Street and Cornhill, City of London

Tite, Sir William (1798-1873)
NOTES: Trading, which opened in 1844, ceased at this the third Royal Exchange in 1939 and later, in the 1990s, the building was refurbished as an upmarket shopping mall.

Competition design for the Royal Exchange, Cornhill, London: perspective from the street

Donaldson, Thomas Leverton (1795-1885)
NOTES: Donaldson's design was selected as the best of the designs which exceeded the cost limit - although Donaldson's surveyor had costed it within the limit.

Corn Exchange, Brunswick Street, Liverpool: perspective of the projected rebuilt building

Picton, Sir James Allanson (1805-1889)
NOTES: The first Corn Exchange on this site was opened in 1808 (designed by John Foster Snr). A building by Picton replaced it in 1851. This print must have been produced before the building was completed as the inscription in the entablature has an incomplete date after 'rebuilt and enlarged'. Just visible at the end of Brunswick Street is Cockerell's Bank of England building.

Central Exchange, Newcastle-upon-Tyne: interior of the newsroom

Walker, George (fl. 1835-1868)
NOTES: Richard Grainger, the builder and developer of Newcastle's 'Grainger Town', built the Central Exchange intending it to be the corn market, but this went to another site so in 1839 he opened a colonnaded newsroom on what would have been the exchange floor. This space later became art gallery, concert hall and vaudeville theatre. Following a fire in 1901 that destroyed the interior the Central Arcade was opened within the Central Exchange Buildings.

Royal Exchange, Threadneedle Street and Cornhill, City of London: perspective from the west

Tite, Sir William (1798-1873)
NOTES: Trading ceased at this the third Royal Exchange in 1939 and later, in the 1990s, the building was refurbished as an upmarket shopping mall. This image was reproduced in Surveyor Engineer & Architect, no. 7, 1840 Aug. 1, facing p. 145; for that image see RIBA17688.
