Carl Sandburg's poem "Chicago" turns 100 this month.
In March 1914, Poetry magazine published the work, and introduced the world to the "City of Big Shoulders". While we may no longer be "hog butcher for the world", Chicago's profile continues to fascinate, divide, welcome and challenge visitors and residents. So what does the city look like to you, 100 years after Sandburg's homage?
