Giant Fertilizer Distributor Makes a Comeback

article image

This fertilizer distributor was bought at an auction in Elbert County, Georgia. It was built by K-P in Columbus-Savannah, Georgia, and was patented July 31, 1900. K-P named it The Giant. I took it apart, sanded all the metal and painted it. Some of the lettering on the box is still legible.
