Brooking, Saskatchewan

Apparently there was a bit of a town here. I came here to get photos of the grain elevator. It was on my informal list of places I wanted to visit.  A stones throw north are a few buildings. They were on a farmer's field and not accessible so I did not attempt any photos. I should have, those buildings were probably what was left of the town. My photos were also limited because of blowing snow. I saw a school marker that noted the location of a long gone one room school. My focus was the grain elevator. I found out later it closed down in 1968. There is an abandoned rail line that runs by the elevator. I want to do a return trip in the summer.


Slightly closer shot.

  2. I've been following your blog for a bit and it seems like there is an endless supply of abandoned grain elevators. The land still seems to be cultivated, so what caused all these elevators to be abandoned?

  4. Another nice one - the lettering on the side is remarkably well preserved which is nice to see.
