The Coal Exchange, City of London, c1910 (1911). The London Coal Exchange was situated on the north side of Thames Street, occupying three different structures from 1770 to 1962. The original coal exchange opened in 1770. A second building from 1805 was replaced by a new purpose built structure constructed from 1847 to 1849, opened by Prince Albert on 30 October 1849. The building was designed James Bunstone Bunning (1802-1863), who held the post of architect to the City of London from 1843 until his death. The Coal Exchange was demolished in 1962 to enable the widening of Lower Thames Street. From London - The City, by Sir Walter Besant. [Adam & Charles Black, London, 1911]
