There was a time when Canadian prairie towns (in the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba) had 5 or 6 grain elevators each, proudly displaying the name of the town. The modernization of the grain industry though has forced the moved towards more efficient grain terminals. Sadly the grain elevators, those once magnificent “prairie sentinels,” are now being torn down and removed.
Without trying to sound too sentimental, these once great icons of the Canadian prairies represent an important era in the history of Canada – the settlement of the Prairies, and the economy that drove it. If you’re in Canada, make sure you take special care to take a picture or two of the few that are remaining, because there will one day come a time when there are no grain elevators left.
