Cleaning up the computer I came across this batch of CBOE photos from either 1997 or 1999 which features the OEX, SPX and AOL pits. It's 83 photos in all and although I've never done much on the CBOE, figured I'd put these up. This is the first time I've watermarked anything and it's for a couple reasons, 1) is I'm planning on using these photos for another project and 2) a good buddy who went on to be a massive trader at the Merc spent a brief time in the AOL pit around then and said those guys were the biggest assholes of any trading pit he's seen. Considering he came to the CBOE from Treasury options at the CBOT and then spent years dealing w/Merc jerks, that says a lot. The photos are a bit low res and the negatives were scanned at Walgreens but I'll eventually get a professional scan.
