Immortality Of The Common Man W.A. Martin, Galena, Missouri

Sidewalk Sticky Note – Galena, Missouri, W.A. Martin – One man’s idea to sign his work is a shot at “immortality” for the common man. Camera in hand, I strolled the streets of Galena, Missouri for a few minutes today. Friday, July 29, 2011. I’ve been strolling these streets off and on since I was five years old, now, I’m past “The Big 5 – 0.” I glanced down at the sidewalk and there by my feet “chiseled in stone” was the name of a man that I had never heard of. I can’t begin to count the number of times that I have strolled up and down this sidewalk in The City Of Galena. Missouri and I never noticed the name in the sidewalk. Here is a “Sticky Note In Time” left by W.A. Martin to his future descendants of a man, who was proud enough to sign his work to stand the test of time. Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.
