Black Tuesday

I love interesting little tidbits and have accumulated a mass of useless information just in case I’m ever a contestant on a quiz show. While everyone is preparing for Halloween around here, I checked out what happened this day in history.

October 29, 1929 Wall Street crashed. In reading the crash had taken place over several days with the culmination ending on Black Tuesday. That day the market traded sixteen million stocks,* the Dow lost thirty points and the market lost fourteen billion dollars.

I don’t usually write historicals, but I can definitely see a story idea in that day in history. Actually I wonder how sugar was trading during that time period?

Until next time, Indulge Your Inner Romantic
