Sometimes I struggle with the titles of my posts in "A Photo A Day" as I did with this one. "Sky scraper" seems so quaint and archaic, just as the phrase "Super Highway" does. Both come from the 20th century when high buildings and four-lane roads were marvelous things.
Well, the Miranda elevator has always been and still is marvelous to me. Painted in pure white, it stands out against the sky. It can be seen for miles and in a landscape that some might say is flat and plain, it breaks the redundancy.*
I did a quick search for the Farmers Elevator Company of Miranda and found that it was mentioned in a 1915 publication called The American Cooperative Journal - Volume 11. I'd like to know more about Miranda and it's grain elevator.
Is there any chance that someone reading this might be able to help?

*Speaking of redundancy, some may have already noticed the compositional similarities between today's post and yesterday's. Intentional? Accidental? Or both? I won't say.
