Lloyd's of London
No doubt you have heard of Lloyd's
of London, the British association of
merchants, ship owners and under-
writers. Their history goes back to
the seventeenth century when Edward
Lloyd started business in Tower
Street in a small coffee house. Later
the office was moved to Lombard
Street and Abchurch Lane, and the
establishment became a center for
shipping men and mariners. At that
Vime Lloyds did a business in shipping
insurance only and billions of dollars
worth of risks on the world's mer-
chant marine have been written from
that office. The ill-fated Titanic was
insured by Lloyds for $10,000,000.
The time came when Lloyd's out-
grew marine insurance and insured
against any risks a man doing any
kind of legitimate business may have
to face-earthquakes, wars, civil dis-
turbances, disease, droughts, the
weather, and anything that threatened
loss and disaster.
Now an American business firm has
insured itself again the election of
Henry Ford to the presidency. Lloyd's
did the insuring, charging $38,000 for
the premium, and agreeing to pay
$400,000 if Ford is elected. The tran-
saction is a legitimate contract of in-
