The Chicago River is like no other. Lake Michigan (just the Lake to the locals) was once the emptying destination for the famed waterway. But ever since 1900, the river has emptied into the Mississippi River instead. Sewage travels along the rivers currents and Chicago was not about to let that mess empty into their beloved lake. They engineered a reversal of the river’s flow known as the largest public earthmoving project. Now it is the only river in the world that flows backward. Celebrate the City by the Lake’s achievement with this Chicago Softstyle Adult V-Neck T-Shirt!
Even though it is not along one of the United State’s coast lines, Chicago boasts some of the nation’s most visited beaches. My Desteenation knows that many citizens of the Windy City initially resist calling their lake’s sandy banks by that term, yet all eventually come around to it. This state Softstyle Adult V-Neck T-Shirt is to honor that corresponding alias: “City by the Lake.” Chicagoans even reversed the flow of their river to keep these ‘beaches’ and their waters clean and clear! That is something we wish the coastlines would partake in themselves!
