Stock Exchange sayings in black and white.

Description

Popular sayings of the London Stock Exchange at the turn of the century provide ample fodder for editor W. Eden Hooper and his illustrator friend, Dudley Hardy, in this collection of humourous charicatures. As Hooper states in his introduction, the Exchange can be described as “a school of big boys, who, when they are not in the ‘blues,’ are brimming over with frolic.” Hardy, an artist educated at University College London and on the Continent, had a varied career as a contributor to various periodicals, a book illustrator, and as a designer of many theatrical posters (including those for most of Gilbert and Sullivan’s operettas).
