Description
 
This promotional booklet was provided by New York Stock Exchange members Anderson & Fox in January, 1929 in a joint promotion with Trans-Lux. Trans-Lux was founded by Percy Furber, a former employee of Thomas Edison, in 1920. His company was built with idea of making rear projection displays.

After his visit to the NYSE, Furber discovered a way to commercialize his invention. Stock quotes were sent to brokers through the Wester Union Stock Ticker where brokers need to read the tape to see the latest trades. Brokers with the most access to the physical tape had an advantage. Furber developed the Trans-Lux Movie Ticker. His projection system would display stock trades and prices at the New York Stock Exchange allowing traders to see what was happening real time.

Trans-Lux was listed on the NY Curb Exchange in 1925 which would become the American Stock Exchange. Trans-Lux was the oldest listing on the AMEX until it delisted in 2011.

This booklet contains the names of the NYSE listed companies and their tickers ranging from BF Goodrich and US Steel to Woolworth.
