“Silo too tall or ladder too short”

Bruce Spoche, a friend of mine, found this picture of his dad, Albert, painting the cornice on our silo. The silo was too tall or the ladder was too short, so they put the ladder in a box wagon. It does not look too safe. Dad is waving his straw hat out of the window that the blower pipe went through while filling the silo. The silo was 30 feet tall and 10 feet in diameter.
