Harvester Dealers of the Past
"Some twelve miles east of
Portland, Oregon and not far from the Columbia river
the vicinity of Troutdale and Gresham, is a
very interesting farming section in which high
yield truck crops prevail. Some sixty farms in
this section are operated by Japanese, who
farm on a larger scale than most other
Japanese truck farmers in the coast regions.
T. R. Mullan, out-in-the-country salesman for
his father, Ike Mullan of Portland, has been
quite successful in selling F-12 Farmalls to
these Japanese. He is shown talking to Sam
Tanaka, route 2, Troutdale, who with his
brother operates a 130-acre farm. The tractor
is shown in a big field of cauliflower.
