In response of the burgeoning Occupy movement that started on Wall Street a few weeks ago (but has since gone global) I thought it might be worthwhile to post this collage sheet I researched and put together. Perhaps you can use it in your mixed media and collage work? All images are in the public domain.
Starting from upper left:
Image #1 (Upper left) - The Bankers Trust and Stock Exchange on Wall Street, New York. Photographed in 1912 by Irving Underhill.
Image #2 (Upper right) - The panic scene on Wall Street Wednesday morning, May 14, 1884 drawn by Schell and Hogan. Harper's weekly, v. 28, no. 1431 (1884 May 24), p. 333.
Image #3 (Bottom left) - Wall Street color lithograph. Artist Aug. Köllner. 1847.
Image #4 (Middle right) - Panic - "The Liveliest of Card Games” made by Panic Card Company, c. 1903.
Image #5 (Bottom right) - "Rotten Finance" cover of Puck Magazine, November 19, 1907. Illustration shows a stonewall labeled "Rotten Finance" constructed with stones showing the faces of many businessmen and financiers; on the ground, in front of the wall, is a broken egg labeled "Confidence". Among those pictured on the wall are John D. Rockefeller, J. Pierpont Morgan, and Edward H. Harriman. Artist Udo J. Keppler.
