University of Saskatchewan archives

The U of S has an archive of 184 elevator photos dating back to 1979. Most seem to have been taken in the 1980's. There's even one of Wolseley taken in 1902. I've added it here for everyone to see. At the end of the file is a Special Section showing the construction of one elevator and the demolition of another. This link (Click on title of this blog) gives enough information to satisfy anyone looking for information about their hometown elevator that may be lost by now. It's exciting to see websites like this that are helping to preserve the history of the prairie grain elevators.
