Inscription.   Na wytyczonym ok. 1230 r. placu handlowano głównie solą oraz towarami z Europy Wschodniej. Najokazalszą kamienicą był tutaj dom nr 16, własność A. Rehdigera, zakupiony w 1642 r. przez gildię kupiecką i zastąpiony w 1825 r. budynkiem Starej Giełdy. W pierzei północnej znajduje się modernistyczna apteka Pod Murzynem (1926 r.) i narożny budynek banku (1929 r.). W 1827 r. na środku placu stanął pomnik G. L. von Bluchera, któremu plac zawdzięczał zmianę nazwy (w 1947 r. powrócono do dawnej nazwy).
