To Email Jim For More Information

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 is available now in print. The book contains all of the data, photographs of the remaining structures and history I have collected of the

1,759 wooden grain elevators in Alberta.

I also include the 40 concrete and 20 steel facilities which have replaced a great number of these wooden sentinels.


For more info on the book, click on the links

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 vanishingsentinels@gmail.com if you have any comments, suggestions or new elevator sightings in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
