City of Many Tentacles

No longer shall Chicago be known as the Windy City or City of Big Shoulders. Henceforth, only "City of Many Tentacles," as this vintage tourism poster declares.

This artwork is digitally printed on 11 x 17 inch 100lb paper and shipped right to your door. Comes with this description:
Among the stranger concepts from a tourism board was Chicago’s attempt to rebrand the constant attacks by giant squid and tentacled terrors from the deep as a sight-seeing marvel. Produced in the 1950s, these posters tried to paint a fun-loving “City of Many Tentacles,” resulting in numerous lawsuits from vacationing families who saw their loved ones dragged into the Chicago River.
