Philadelphia Exchange

Robyn Carter

Marlborough, New Zealand

Artist's Description

Another historic Building I came across while walking the streets of Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Merchants Exchange opened in 1834 and stood in the commercial heart of the city. Merchants, manufacturers, brokers and shipmasters gathered here to trade stocks and commodities and to learn the latest business news.
The Exchange has been called architect William Strickland’s ‘Philadelphia Masterpiece’. Strickland broke with British traditions and became the leader in Greek Revival architecture.
The Philadelphia Exchange has been restored on the exterior only and is not open to the public.
