Dorothy, Alberta revisited March 26, 2017

I have taken photos of the grain elevator before. Sometimes I like to revisit places to see if I can get a different perspective on things. These were taken at the top of the valley.

Fence line at the top of the hill.

Red Deer River down below.

A highway runs in front of the elevator. Off to the left of the elevator north of the highway is what remains of the town. There are two churches, a couple of buildings, and a couple of residents. A railway used to run through here and there used to be a lot more here. A farm is in the foreground. 

A storm ripped the roof off of the elevator a few years ago. Grain elevators are very solidly built so it will be standing for a few years yet. I have read a few rumours about plans to restore it.


  1. Your work is really improving BW.

  2. Wonderful perspective in the first photo.
    Love the second to last of the grain elevator, you captured it beautifully.

    1. To be honest all I really did was take photos from the top of a hill.
