Answers, picture round December 11, 2012 at 11:26 pm
The picture round was pretty easy, mostly.
Shot 1 was indeed sunrise over Logan airport, outside Boston.
Shot 2 was the BIS, HypoVereinsbank (now part of Unicredit), and Goldman. Unicredit continues to have a rather low price/book ratio (around 0.35 when I was writing the quiz); Goldman’s ability to keep the lights on during Sandy when others could not generated some comment.
The plaque in shot 3 is at the FDR memorial in Washington DC. The connection with Sandy Weill is Glass Steagall: FDR enacted it, while Sandy recently opined that it would have been better if it had not been repealed (by the Gramm Leach Bliley Act Weill campaigned so hard for).
