The origins of the Wall Street Journal lie in a series of bulletins that were issued throughout the working day and delivered by hand to traders on the New York Stock Exchange by the Dow Jones & Company.
These were then compiled at the end of the day into the Customers' Afternoon Letter and it was this that later became the Wall Street Journal, first published today in 1889. It currently has the highest newspaper circulation in the United States and has won a Pulitzer Prize 34 times, reason enough we think to toast it with a gin-based cocktail, The Business, to say Happy Birthday to this long-standing publication.
