 1904 St. Louis Worlds Fair

Block 4

The exhibit in this booth was from Midland Manfuacturing Co., Tarkio, MO.  Midland was a plow company owned by David Rankin, who had more farmland than anyone in Missouri.

Here is a photo showing a scene on the Rankin farm near Tarkio.  I believe this is the photo used to create one of the large murals.
