NOTES: A third of the City's buildings were destroyed by aerial attack between September 1940 and March 1945. The first Corn Exchange, open to the sky, was built in Mark Lane in 1747. It was partly rebuilt in 1827 and the New Exchange adjoining it was constructed in 1828. The old Exchange was again extended and roofed over in 1850 and William Barlow advised on the design of the iron rib roof. The two Exchanges were amalgamated in 1929 but suffered severe bomb damage in 1941. It was rebuilt on the site of the two former Exchanges and reopened in 1954. The Corn Exchange moved to the Baltic Exchange in 1987.

Product overview

Images are printed to order on high quality photographic paper using the latest digital technology. Images can be ordered in either matt, semi-gloss or gloss finish.

If you intend to frame your print behind glass, then we recommend that you select the semi-gloss or matt finish so that you get less light reflection from the print/glass.

The images in our collection, although kept to the highest possible standards, can sometimes display irregularities. These may have been caused during their original printing, or through damage that has occurred before coming to RIBA. In some cases therefore, these may be visible on your photographic reproduction.

Please note that because the original images available come in all shapes and sizes, and will never be cropped or distorted, different images will have different borders. When you order a product, the product choice screen will give you an approximate portrayal of how the image will fit on different print sizes.
