Memories

One of the reasons I have collected photos of Saskatchewan grain elevators is because I used to haul grain to this very elevator when I was a teenager. Grain elevators were part of my life experience and became a part of my memory for ever. For many prairie folks elevators hold a special place near to their heart as farmers made up the majority of the province for the first years until cities grew in size often due to the fact that the small farmers could no longer afford to support themselves and had to sell to their wealthier neighbors. Many of the new city residents were farmers.






I've added some effects to this photo to make it appear like it's an old photo. Considering that I was a teenager so many years ago I think it's fitting.
