A man unloads a bag of Purina animal feed from the back of a checkered International L-150 truck owned by the Agriculture Supply Company. The truck is parked near a brick building and a shed. Another man stands near its passenger-side door. The original caption reads: "The Agriculture Supply Company of El Paso, dealer for the Ralston Purina Company of St. Louis, has made very effective use of the Purina red-and-white trade-marked checkerboard in the decoration of its new International as shown. The truck, a Model L-150 of 154-inch wheelbase, is equipped with flatbed body. It is one of three trucks used in the delivery of feedstuffs, fertilizers, seed, and insecticides, mostly to farmers within a radius of 30 miles."
