Started in 2018, this blog is named after the topic of its first post, the Tontine Coffee-House. More than just an ordinary coffeehouse, it was the inauspicious ancestor of the New York Stock Exchange. This blog will recount the histories of other great financial institutions and innovations, with some oddities along the way.
Before digging deeper into all the financial archaeology that abounds here, read the post that started it all.
