A Presentation on the History of the Corn Exchanges

 

This presentation takes a look at the rise and fall of the Corn Exchanges in the UK and the rest of the world and the beautiful architecture that was left behind. As a data supplier to the industry and ex trader I am amazed by the enterprise and innovative solutions that capitalism through the ages has influenced. Both, upon our impetus to ameliorate as a species and as a driving catalyst to the limitless human imagination.

Join me for a look at the rapid expansion and demise of the UK Corn Exchanges throughout a short 30 year period towards the end of the 19th century.  The one big difference with this demise compared to countless others in history is that it has left us with a legacy of magnificent architecture that is still an important part of UK heritage.
