Honoring the landmark

As Upton Sinclair's famous novel turns 100, the Union Stockyard Gate is hailed as a literary landmark during a ceremony. The gateway marks an era when Chicago was the nation's meatpacker. "The Jungle" depicted unsanitary conditions and eventually led to the formation of the Food and Drug Administration.Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune
