Stock exchange

by Vincent

The Brussels stock exchange (la Bourse de Commerce) was finished being built in 1873 and is situated in a busy part of the city that is bustling with activity day & night.

Arriving from the Boul. Antoine Dansaert catching my first glimpse of the Brussels Stock Exchange

Here a closer view of the portico and its imposing columns

On the very top you can see the sculpture: ‘teaching commercial and industrial Expansion’ by Jacques Jacquet

More sculpture details that you can see as you walk around the stock exchange

Each side of the entrance is flanked with a Lion that represents power and domination

View from one of it’s corners

Full frontal view

Last one this time from a bit of the side
