Did you know that the great hockey legend, Gordie Howe, was born in Floral, Saskatchewan? Floral used to be a hamlet just east of Saskatoon. As Saskatoon grew, Floral slowly disappeared. I'm surprised there's not a marker to show where Gordie Howe was born. It would make a great tourist draw, don't you think?
Now even the lone elevator that survived over the years has disappeared. Here's a photo of the elevator at Floral that stood until 2003.
