Sydney Stock Exchange stock and share lists

Large format bound volumes of the official lists from the close of trading sessions in the call room at the Sydney Stock Exchange. This information was posted up for the public to see three times a day - forenoon, noon and afternoon. The closing prices of stocks and shares were entered in by hand on pre-printed sheets.

The Sydney Stock Exchange was formed to allow brokers and traders to trade stocks and bonds for companies listed in New South Wales. It formed an association with the stock exchanges in Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane Perth and Hobart called the Australian Associated Stock Exchanges but remained an independent body. These six stock exchanges amalgamated on 1 April 1987 to form the Australian Stock Exchange Limited (ASX).

Lists from 1900 to 1950 are now available online.
