Beautifully engraved unissued Certificate from the famous Philadelphia Bourse dated
189_. This historic document was printed by the E. A. Wright Banknote Company and has an
ornate border around it with a vignette of a group of old business people sitting on a rock with a harbor scene in the background. This item is
over 105 years old.
A Bourse is a stock exchange. The Philadelphia Bourse was the first in the
world to house simultaneously a stock exchange, maritime exchange, and
grain-trading center. Under the guidance of Philadelphia businessman George
Bartol, the exchange thrived. However, as the business community moved
westward in the city the sun started setting on the Bourse. In 1982, the Bourse
was renovated to a combination shopping mall and office complex.
