This sepia colored photograph shows a farmer standing beside his truck filled with produce for a parade in Topeka, Kansas. On the runner of the truck a sign reads "Ship by Truck". The parade held in conjunction with the Kansas Free Fair was to promote motor transportation and good road day at the fair. Approximately 100 trucks followed the parade route from Eighth & Jackson Streets to the fair grounds to promote the importance of farm life and also the cheaper and quicker way to transport produce to market.

Date: September 10, 1919
