Chamberlain, Saskatchewan

Chamberlain is the only town or village on the way from Regina to Saskatoon that one has to drive through. All the other places are routed past the populated centres. I don't know the reason for this, but it certainly is of benefit to the small village of about 100 residents. It's also at the junction of the highway to Moose Jaw. And, it still has its wooden grain elevator. It's as though time has stopped still here. And, since it forces traffic to slow down to 50 kmh many travelers, including truckers, stop there for a coffee or a pit stop.
I finally got a photo of this elevator this past June. I'm posting it for the first time on this blog. It's obvious by the whited out area on the side of the elevator that it's no longer a POOL elevator. It's not clear who owns it but SaskTel either owns it or pays someone to advertise on it. Interesting "billboard".
