A few days ago, a package arrived at the front door from David Thompson in Texas with a cache of broker memos. To most this would not be very exciting. But I'm pumped! Dave has retained what must be the pick of pile, but what's left provides a great cross-section of the NYSE in 1900.
Virtually all of the memos are from sales to the brokerage house of Eames and Moore, mostly with $1 and $2 values attached and the occasional $5. Thanks David! Please continue to come to this site to see more in the coming weeks and months.
