The Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) is the world’s oldest futures and options exchange. It was established in 1848 and since 1930 has operated out of this building on 141 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago according to this Wikipedia page.

La Salle is the street directly in front of the building and the location of a scene in the latest Batman movie, “The Dark Knight”. Watch out for the statues and clock in the scene where Batman goes up against the Joker in his truck. It’s quite visible in the background. Moments later you can see the text, “Chicago’s finest …” in a shop window. I thought it was very sloppy of them not to hide those signs of the locality.
