|Postcard from Florida! Welcomes sun, fun and water-play around the MARTIN PBM MARINER|
Just go here
Our photo theme this week is of a brilliant-over-achiever, Glenn L. Martin who first turned his mother’s kitchen into a kite-factory and later turned an old Methodist church in Los Angeles, California into an airplane factory. I'm totally serious! Martin used the sails of kites as inspiration on everything from ice skates to wagons and even pushed his bicycle to move faster with very little effort. Effort and success were his middle names and a driving force to many accomplishments in his life.
You have heard of Lockheed Martin, Martin Marietta Corporation, or Wright-Martin Aircraft just to name a few….. haven't you?
Thank-goodness for postcards....one of my favorite pastimes is searching through old postcards, if only more of them were actually mailed and written on...
|The MARTIN FLOATPLANES...Martin built his first pusher bi-plane in 1909 at the age of 23 and not to forget.....he took up exhibition flying at fairs and local airfields.|
Glenn Martin's name and dreams made it big in advertising too.....with this fantastic ad
