Repro ID: D9957
Description: Designed by Richard Rogers, this contemporary building in Leadenhall Street, City of London, has been home to Lloyd's since 1984. Although London is no longer a major cargo-handling port, it continues to dominate important aspects of 'invisible' trade and maritime services. Being at the centre of world time, London is able to benefit from trading with the other major financial markets, Tokyo and New York, on the same day.
