Name This Place 11.4.1

Once again yesterday, I failed to stump you eagle-eyed MissPresers, although I came close on the last post of the day, Abraham Lincoln School in Leland, which took Suzassippi an hour and a half to identify. Competition was hot and heavy throughout the day, and here are the standings as of this morning.

Victoria Moon Conway: 9
Suzassippi: 8
Tom Barnes: 4
crpiii: 3
Jack Elliott: 2
Carunzel: 2
sec040121: 1

Today there will be two posts, and tomorrow will have three, so stay tuned–you never know who will jump in and grab points–maybe you?

    • This was more than I knew, so I’m glad you found it. I just took aid true because it’s too cool a sign not to.

      • Well in that case…it was named for Henry Martin, the chemist who discovered a non-flammable method of dry cleaning so you could do it on site, rather than taking it to a remote location to be cleaned with flammable fluids that might cause fires and that is not a good thing where your customers are (although apparently okay where the laborers are). It sped up the dry cleaning process, and thus “one-hour martinizing” was born. I could not find anything specific about the building however.

  4. Tupelo on Main St. at Madison St. Yeah, I know, several days late! LOL. Spain House in background. The house has been moved to Mill Village (aka Mill Town) near the Tupelo Cotton Mills factory building!
