EconintersectSecurities Technology Monitor has a great slide show that walks one through the history of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE:NYX) from its founding under the buttonwood tree (pictured) right up to today.  Notable milestones, in addition to the first trading rules agreement signed on May 17, 1792 under the buttonwood tree in front of 68 Wall Street, include building its first permanent home in 1865 and the opening of the newly built New York Stock Exchange Building in 1903.  That building, at 20 Broad Street, is still the NYSE home today.


Follow up:

Here are two more of the pictures from the Securities Technology Monitor slide show.
