Taken As Is late evening, at Meadows, Manitoba, Canada with the sun setting behind me…To view larger click HERE

This old elevator was one of the first built by Paterson Grain Co. on the CPR mainline at the turn of the century. It has stood the test of time and is now abandoned, and not in use at all…. It has been replaced by a modern cement Elevator nearby at Rosser, Manitoba. No other info could be acquired at the time of posting, sorry…Meadows is in the heart of Manitoba’s grain belt, about 45 kms Northwest of Winnipeg

“If you’re not from the prairie, you can’t know my soul,
You don’t know our blizzards, you’ve not fought our cold.
You can’t know my mind, nor ever my heart,
Unless deep within you, there’s somehow a part…
A part of these things that I’ve said that I know,
The wind, the sky and earth, the storms and the snow.
Best say that you have — and then we’ll be one,
For we will have shared that same blazing sun.”

If you’re not from the prairie book…by Dave Bouchard
