This private project is a work in progress, and this web site is to supplement my book, “Vanishing Sentinels The Remaining Grain elevators of Alberta and British Columbia, which are now available in print and electronic format. The book contains all of the known data, photographs of the remaining structures and history I have collected of the 1,759 wooden grain elevators and the concrete and steel facilities as well in Alberta as of 2012.
For more info on the book, click on the Books, Maps etc. link at the top of this page.
I hope you enjoy looking at the photos I have taken since 2003, and please feel free to comment or leave information on grain elevators in your area that I may have missed in the book.
All of us have a stake in this important part of our history!
Please do not forget the Vanishing Sentinels Of The Alberta Prairies!
Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comments, suggestions or new elevator sightings in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
