Decline of grain elevators

I came across a site that lists of the number of Primary Grain Elevators on the prairies over the years. (Click on title if you'd like to read it all.) In 1933, there were 3,047 elevators in Saskatchewan. By 1986 there were only 994; by 1996, 656 and in 2006 there were only 179 licensed grain elevators left in Saskatchewan. That means there are only about 6% of these elevators left to see and enjoy. Amazing!
