Morton Salt, Chicago

Saturday, 1st April 2006 by

Morton Salt is apparently North America's leading producer of salt and have been based in Chicago since being founded in 1848. The roof of the factory has the company name, along with their slogan "When it Rains It Pours" and the "Morton Salt Girl", a drawing of a young girl waking in the rain, accidentally dropping salt behind her.

It took me a while to work out the meaning of the logo and slogan (the salt will pour even when there's moisture in the air) but during my Googling I found this bizarre tattoo of a dedicated Morton Salt fan.
