Chicago-The Cradle of Printing Industry


    In one of our previous posts we were writing about "Big Apple"- the city that many people dream of going to...This time we want to introduce you to "Big Onion"!!!
Chicago - the one and only, jewel of the Midwest, is the capital of the state of Illinois. It is the third largest city of United States with population 2.8 million people living on 237 square miles of land. 

    You are probably wondering why "Big Onion"? It is only the one of numerous nicknames that this city holds. The actual translation from native American word shikaakwa(Chicago) is "Wild Onion" that grew at the riverbanks at that time. People eventually came up with "Big Onion" to make a parallel with "Big Apple".
In 1837 Chicago was pronounced the city. Three years later,in 1900, the first large-scale project of redirecting the flow of Chicago River to Mississippi River instead of Michigan Lake was finished. It was celebration time for citizens of Chicago. There are other meaningful nicknames referring to this city such as "The Wind City", "The Second City", "The City that Works" etc. The most recognizable nickname of Chicago is most likely "The Windy City". You might be thinking :"Oh yes, I know! It's because of the constant breeze coming from The Michigan Lake". Even though it is one of few theories, the most of information point on the theory of "Windy Climate" among the local politicians in 1870. 
"The Second City" refers to the battle with New York in 19th Century over the title of the most populated city. Even though this epithet remains, today Chicago is the third largest city in The States right after New York City and Los Angeles.
