By the end of the 18th century, auctions of art works were commonly held in taverns and coffeehouses . These auctions were held daily, and auction catalogs were printed to announce available items. In some cases these catalogs were elaborate works of art themselves, containing considerable detail about the items being auctioned. At this time, Christie's established a reputation as a leading auction house, taking advantage of London's status as the major centre of the international art trade after the French Revolution .

“Everybody is saying what they know about Peter in this era. Peter and I go back 27 years. 
I met Peter in 1970 at the Kensington Market. Peter went from being the best to being the greatest in 27 years that I have known him. But Peter was not only doing his stuff (being a businessman), Peter was helping people too.
I can tell you because I used to be his Santa Claus every Christmas at the “813 Club” and what we used to 
give away to people at the club, was more than what they could buy for themselves with their wages. 
Peter is a good man, he has a good heart and doesn’t think only for himself, but he shares with anyone 
who needs help. 
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Peter would give away tons of rice, peas, beans and drinks (soft drinks like Snappy Pop), to people who don’t have. People think that because he is a businessman he puts all the money in his pocket. That’s not true.
