The World As We See It, Or As You Missed It …30 June 2011

Rural Canada Coast to Coast to Coast Pre- 1960"s on January 25, 2009

Captured late in the evening, with sun directly behind me, at Warren, Manitoba, Canada about 45 NW of of Winnipeg. Warren was named by the CNR in 1905, when this paticular elevator was built, after A.E. Warren, Western Vice President of the CNR….It has now been renovated, and is privately owned and operated locally.

Old Grain Elevators here in Western Canada, have certainly been part of our heritage, and indeed have been the Sentinels of our blessed prairie landscape for many years. But unfortunately they are slowly disappearing for many reasons, and replaced by huge concrete structures that are built to last, to alleviate the always apparent danger of fire…..Here in Manitoba we still have some left, but they too are dwindling…But the good news is that at Inglis Manitoba, our Government has preserved the 5 remaining old elevators, and declared them a Heritage site…Ironically it has become a tourist attraction for that small town here in Manitoba, which is close to the Saskatchewan border.
