Adam Hope

First Board of Trade

London's first Board of Trade was organized on April 22, 1857 at the Mechanics' Institute with Adam Hope as its first president.  42 residents signed the constitution and gave their names as subscribers for the amount of one pound annually.    In 1922, the Board of Trade changed its name to the Chamber of Commerce.
