Picture of the Day: Trenton Makes, the World Takes

Trenton Makes The World Takes.jpg

Since 1910, Trenton, N.J. has had one of the odder slogans of any city in America, now displayed on the Lower Delaware River Bridge over the Delaware River.

Gov. Chris Christie will keep seeing that sign, now that he has yet again declined to run for president of the United States, electing to stay in Trenton instead of voyaging out onto the national campaign trail. The slogan referred to Trenton's manufacturing economy in the early 20th century, and, while Trenton may have made Christie into a political star, he hasn't been exported just yet.
