CBOT's 1929 temporary home on South Clark

Another set of photos to get me through the lunchtime trading lull.  The current CBOT building was completed in 1930 and was built upon the site of the 1885 building which preceded it.  I always wondered where the trading floor moved to for the year or two during demolition and construction but just found out, 449-511 South Clark Street and below are some photos of the cramped trading floor.  Currently in that area around South Clark are modern buildings/parking garages so nothing remains of it from that era.
