1904 St. Louis Worlds Fair
The Avery Manufacturing Company headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, displayed threshing outfits, cultivators, and corn planters in block 24. Mr. E.W. Langer, the Midwestern representative, was in charge of the exhibit. He performed daily operations of the threshers and planters in order to demonstrate the many features of the machines.
A display of a “fireproof” wagon made of nine-tenths of iron was also in Block 24. The display included the construction of every step in making it provided by Bettendorf Axle Company.
