A Year Ago, Crash of a titan: The inside story of the fall of Lehman Brothers

The Independent remembers:

Go home. It’s no one famous. You’re just looking at a whole bunch of people who lost their jobs. Police shouted into the crowd, hastily erecting barricades, but New Yorkers and tourists were moth-like in the face of camera flashbulbs and the spotlights of television crews. Even in the neon-lit stampede of humanity that is Times Square, this was a sight to remember.

By the time darkness fell it was running on all the news channels: Lehman Brothers was filing for bankruptcy.
