A Rodeo Legend Among Us!

Longtime Timbergrove Manor resident Thomas Martin designed the “bowlegged H” logo for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo way back in 1966 while working as a graphic artist at a printing company. He was asked to design a new logo to replace the old “encircled five-point star” the Show had used as it's official seal for as long as anyone could remember. The new “bowlegged H” logo was used more and more on letterheads, buckles, souvenir programs and signage. In 1974 it became the official logo of the HLSR and was trademarked. Tom has a trophy to prove it. Tom is now 85 and has lived in Timbergrove for over 50 years. He is also a four-time Yard of the Month winner! (Thank you, Tom, for paying your dues!)
