Grain Elevators at Indian Head
In late May, I convinced my wife to stop briefly at Indian Head, SK so I could shoot the grain elevators there. This is not a comprehensive view of the elevators but a brief glimpse of yesterday's and today's elevators.
Did you know that Indian Head had twelve grain elevators in 1905? In 1902 it was the largest initial shipment point of wheat in the world. Even now, with three elevators (of which at least two appear active) it appears busier than many Prairie towns.
I'll have to take more detailed photos of these elevators the next time I pass through. I also want to stop at Sintaluta nearby, as their elevators look pretty interesting.
