Alberta's Vanishing Sentinels

 IMG_8486 - Copy.JPG

I love to photograph Alberta’s Grain Elevators whenever I come across them. Grain Elevators are buildings used for the storage and shipment of grain. According to the wiki page, they were invented in 1842 in New York by a merchant named Joseph Dart and the engineer Robert Dunbar. Most of the old Grain Elevators have been torn down now (there was a huge cull in the early 1990’s). I think it’s a shame to be honest, not only are they apart of Alberta’s rural history they are a prairie icon.
