Doesn't Look a Day over 175

Illinois - Museum of Science and Industry and Chicago Flag

Notes: The city of Chicago was founded on March 4, 1837, 179 years ago today.  Happy Birthday, Chicago!  The flag of Chicago is white with two light blue stripes and four red stars.  It looks a lot like this card, except an outline of the Museum of Science and Industry is taking the place of the top blue bar.  Apparently the North American Vexillological Association (who knew there was such a thing?) ranked Chicago's flag 2nd out of 150 city flags.  If you're wondering, number 1 was the flag of Washington, D.C.  Pffft!!
