Bins of steel

Steel bins, round and smooth, made loading grain much easier for the farmers. (See yesterday's blog.) These bins are small compared to the newer ones farmers are using these days. The windmill in this photo still stands on a farm north of Saskatoon, SK. It's quite rare as wooden ones such as this one are subject to the elements. Windmills were used to pump water for the farm animals, using wind to drive the pump.
