One of the best examples of Art Deco is at the bottom end of the La Salle Street Corridor: The Chicago Board of Trade Building (CBOT) (141 W. Jackson Blvd.).
Outside and in it is the summit of Art Deco elegance, complete with a pyramidal roof crowned by an aluminum statue of Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture.
Being the world's oldest futures and options exchange as well as a national landmark, the Board of Trade in Chicago is a must-see for any history buff, or anyone with interests in the history of the stock market.
