The Chicago Embassy Church at W. 59th St. and S. Princeton Ave. was originally St. Martin of Tours Church, organized by German immigrants in 1886. A gold-leaf statue of St. Martin, erected on the roof in 1939, was blown down in an Oct. 2006 windstorm.

    Hi Mr. Laker. I graduated from St. Martin in 1982 and we are putting together an all class reunion this summer (Aug 2015). If your picture is chosen, I would like permission to use it on the t-shirts we intend to order.
