In this circa 1911 photo of the Pickering farm silos, the salesman shown in last week’s photo is standing at left. Meanwhile, two children are at the base of the silo holding corn stocks which appear to be 12- to – 13 feet tall. What is believed to be two members of the Pickering family are on the wagon at the right.
