Thank you, John.
I visited your website and your Panoramio collection. Impressive.
I noticed your credit to John Weeks. He has an enormous amount of informatin on his site.
I noticed that you've visited many sites that I've loaded onto my Garmin for future visits.
Check my collection for tags of "railroad" and for "bridge". I've got a few "mystery" bridges I'd sure like help with.
Feel free to leave comments!
A vintage 1960's style cylindrical Mobil gasoline pump. This one missing it's translucent back-lit dome and retired to kerosene duties. Check out the old ice cooler!
"Cardtrol" Wow! Remember when a "Cardtrol" meant you could fill up 24/7? Even when the station was closed? Without an attendant? How cool was that? Talk about cutting edge! Where else were you going to fill up at 2:00 am unless you had a Cardtrol for your local Coop!

It was explained to me that the St. Luke's Lutheran Church in Franklin was sided in these "scrap" pieces of the locally quarried Morton Gneiss. This unique form of granite (rainbow gneiss) with all these folds can be found EVERYWHERE in this area.

And lining the local ditches.
I have also been told that this beautiful granite is used on many public, private and government buildings across the country.
The "Standard Oil" sign in Amboy didn't get the same preservation. http://www.panoramio.com/photo/61457335
Is this an old "Standard Oil" sign? http://www.panoramio.com/photo/62739990
