Enjoy this elegant evocation of a time long past in an 11 x 17 print. Comes with this description:

Although many know it either as a cosmopolitan metropolis or as the hog-butchering capital of the world, most people are not familiar with Chicago's rough and tumble beginnings. Even as early as 1820, the time this print depicts, the city was still troubled by prehistoric monsters who roamed the grounds freely. Early settlers were warned to take precautions against these dino-saurus creatures. Eventually the arrival of the railroad and mighty Lady Industry spelled the death of these majestic, lumbering creatures.
