Same elevator, different story


It seems the Hepburn elevator is a favourite of mine. I found a write-up on this grain elevator and thought I should include it as it shows how a community can save these prairie icons if they have the will and the where-with-all.
A spiral staircase to the top with a tea house? Food for thought. I'm sure they'd appreciate everyone's financial contribution to the idea. It sure would be a good tourist attraction.
And, here's another photo rendition of this elevator.

I stumbled upon your blog site and the Hepburn elevator when I was looking for a photo from which to reference an illustration for a children's story book I am doing for my own granchildren. At the age of three I and a small friend played in that elevator not knowing the dangers until an operator scared us away.
