The Floral Station, Sedalia, Missouri

This is a view of The Floral Station on a postcard published in 1933. This station was located next to the Missouri State Fairgrounds for many years, but is no longer there. There is still a State Fair Floral Company elsewhere in Sedalia that "has been proudly serving Sedalia since 1912."

Information on the back of the postcard:

This station won first for the most attractive station in the U. S. recently.
• This is an unusual fillling station, one half mile south of 50, on U.S. Highway 65, Sedalia, Mo. It is owned and operated by the State Fair Floral Company whose greenhouses adjoin. This makes a very pleasing combination. Our aim is the best service humanly possible. Hot water too.
