Paris Stock Exchange. Early photograph, dating from around 1880, of the Paris Bourse (stock exchange), in Paris, France. Horse-drawn carriages are lined up outside. This building, the Palais Brongniart, also known as the Palais de la Bourse, was designed by and posthumously named for the architect Alexandre-Theodore Brongniart (1739-1813). Built in the neo-classical Greek style, the colonnaded building was completed in 1825 with a limestone facade and sixty-four 10-metre-high limestone exterior columns. The photographic printing technique used here was autotypy, with the resulting photograph called an autotype.
