Embedded text or transcriptJust as the weather is never right for farmers, so are conditions never favourable to stockbrokers.
Stock Exchange
Markets depressed
One reads "Owing to the number of flies this autumn, business on the Stock Exchange was restricted."
Or, "The ending of the holiday season is not without it's effects on markets, which are depressed in consequence."
Or, "The impending departure of a ladies' water polo team for South Africa caused markets to be idle."
Or again "With Xmas only three months off, it is natural that prices should be marked down."
Imagine this idiosyncrasy entending and you must read "Owing to the fine weather last week, Haselden's cartoon were flat."
Person DepictedHaselden; William Kerridge (1872-1953)
NotesPencil notes at top margin read 'The Stock Exchange. (It is natural that Stock Exchange business should be influenced by a financial sensation like the latest one. but a mere outsider sometimes marvels at the frivolous nature of the causes that upset it.)'
