Flour Bin
Donated by John Robinson

This flour bin came from the Dave and Nina Cowan homeplace southeast of Greenland (Washington County). The ad is a page from the 1927 Sears catalog, showing a family proudly admiring their new kitchen cabinet, complete with a flour bin much like the one owned by the Cowans. The ad describes an "easy-filling flour bin. Capacity, 50 pounds. Patented style lowering rods bring bin down to convenient level for filling. Has handy patent sifter."
