Life in Potter County Tx 1850 to 1950
Grain elevators in small town in Potter County, Tx 1939

Almost every small town in the panhandle had at least one grain elevator dominating the skyline. This one is in a small town in Potter County shows trucks lined up to unload freshly harvested wheat in 1939. The elevator would lift the entire truck from the front axles to empty the truck bed into a pit where it would be augured or elevated to the top. The elevator would dry and store the grain until it could be shipped by train to consumers across the country.
