The View From Here - Various thoughts and travels
And that must have been the elevator agent's house, right beside it.
I went to google maps & took a look with the satellite view. https://goo.gl/maps/AmfyNUuqxgT2 Near as I can tell the grain elevator was next to the railroad tracks (that have been removed). BRBs in the field to the west...I was in the line yesterday going back into the US from Los Algodones MX & the lady next to me was from Saskatchewan. I thought about the Alberta pictures you put up on your blog...
You are right. The rail line was taken out years ago. There never was much of a town here and removing the rail line contributed to killing it.
It's a very nice elevator.
Wow, great photo!
