Chicago: The Monster City

Chicago and Giant Monsters: they just go well together! Bring home this 11 x 17 inch print, printed on sturdy 100lb paper, and enjoy both! Comes with this description: "With the city unable to stop the flow of monsters into the Chicagoland area from Lake Michigan, the Illinois Central Railroad company took a novel approach in 1926. Casting the skyscraper-sized behemoths and tentacled water beasts as attractions to the thrill-seeking flapper generation, they hoped to draw thousands to "The Monster City." Sadly, the tourists who did take a chance on this bit of salesmanship were eaten before they could positively influence the city's economy."
