ITN footage from Lloyd’s has been found after nearly 80 years in the archives. Films made between 1928 and 1961 have come to light and can now be seen on the Lloyd’s website. They include a reconstruction of the original coffee house owned by Edward Lloyd, showing what the world’s leading specialist insurance market might have looked like in the 17th century. Scenes also include an auction for a ship, where common practice was for the auction to continue until the candle in the coffee house went out – known as Sale by Candlelight. The last bidder before the flame died got the ship.
