What does your favorite t-shirt say?
This t-shirt says Northampton County. The design features two symbols of Northampton County: a star and a steel I-beam.
This t-shirt is an attention getter.
It helps introverts. Just imagine a college student away from home. If you are a college student this will be easy. If you are not a college student then imagine a close relative who is: child, grandchild, niece, or nephew wearing this t-shirt and another student asks what it says and what does the graphic mean.
“Why is there a star on your t-shirt?" they will ask.
"The star is a symbol of Bethlehem, PA. It is in Northampton County which is where I am from." you will explain.
The grey color itself is symbolic. Grey stands for cement, specifically Portland cement. The Atlas Portland Cement Company had a plant in Northampton County because of the natural limestone deposits found in the area. The Atlas Portland Cement Company provided the cement used to build the Panama Canal and the Empire State Building.
"What is with the 'I' shape in the middle?", they might ask.
"That is a steel I-beam and it represents Bethlehem Steel. Bethlehem Steel was located in Northampton County. Its bones have been repurposed," you will answer.
You could also point out that Bethlehem Steel was among the world’s largest steel producers and shipbuilders at its peak.
You make a connection that would have otherwise just slipped away.
