Outback 2011: Charters Towers: Stock Exchange

Built in 1887, the Royal Arcade housed Charters Towers’ Stock Exchange, Australia’s only regional Stock Exchange, from 1890 to 1916.

There’s a small mechanical display demonstrating the activities of the Stock Exchange. As you might expect, fortunes were made and lost in this place.

At work.
