BADP On the Road - Cincinnati "Porkopolis"

"A Streetcar Named Pig"

Way back in the 1820's Cincinnati was the capital of pork processing plants,  earning it the prestigious nickname, PORKOPOLIS.  Alas, all good things must come to an end and in 1861 Chicago snatched the title away. Not to worry, Cincinnati has found a way to celebrate that rich heritage and has enlisted artists to decorate pigs all over town. I caught two as we crossed the street for lunch last week.

Pretty pigs on the streets--something we will never see here in Jerusalem.
