A giant lighthouse full of daytrippers occupies most of this charming image done to promote travel to the American Great Lakes with United Air. Look closer to see all the details artist Stan Galli has included; cargo boats bringing in goods to the harbor criss cross with white sailboats, seagulls fly towards us, and the bow of a woman’s hat blows in the breeze.
The Great Lakes are five interconnected freshwater lakes that connect with the Atlantic Ocean by way of the Saint Lawrence River. The Great Lakes area is located in the middle of America, along its northern border with Canada. Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario have been a boon to the Mid-West’s economy for centuries. The cities of Cleveland, Chicago, Detroit, Buffalo, and Toronto are all located along the Great Lakes.
