BudE,
Thanks for all the great photos, bringing back memories of the Martin station on Halsted in Chicago Heights where all the local gearheads loaded up with Purple Martin so many years ago.

Here are enough MARTIN stamps we can put in our books and get a new electric can opener! The second picture was a kinda sad one for me,It is their corporate logo. I took it on a cold winter day at MARTIN OIL SERVICE's headquarters in Alsip, IL as the last of the office equipment was being hauled away and the end had come.

This is it for Martin and I for COTM. I've enjoyed sharing with you. I want to wish everyone a wonderful holiday weekend and please say prayers for our armed forces. God bless America!

I know this is late but I just wanted those who are not from this area to see how dynamic Martin made their stations. This is a small one. I was just able to get this picture.
