Artist's Description

Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village, Alberta, Canada

Each town in western Canada had a least one grain elevator near the railway station. During the 1920s this elevator was owned and operated by the Home Grain Company in the town of Bellis, Alberta. It regularly bought grain from the local farmers and could hold 23,000 bushels of grain at a time (A modern-day elevator holds 100,000 to 150,000 bushels). To avoid the danger of fire, the gasoline engine that powered the elevator was located in an office nearby. The engine was linked to the elevator with a long drive belt.
