Artist's Description

This is the former Manitoba Pool Elevator, later Agricore, that was built in 1949 after the tragic train collision in Dugald in 1947 that burned the previous one. The Ogilvie elevator built in 1911 had a capacity of 20,000 bushels and ten bins. It was operated by a six horse power gas engine. In 1940 a new elevator was built west of the old one, which fortunately was left standing because it was put to use when the new building was destroyed by fire following the train wreck. In 1949 when the original elevator was torn down, the cribbing, found in perfect condition was used in the new building with it’s capacity of 35,000 bushels in twenty bins and operated by a ten horse power electric motor. There was also a cleaning bin installed. It’s my belief that this is the elevator in the photo. Taken March 8, 2009. Information taken from the book Springfield 1st Rural Municipality in Manitoba 1873-1973_
