Elevators at Domain and McTavish

Roger Workman was kind enough to send along these photos he took of the elevators at Domain and McTavish, both on the CP La Riviere subdivision.

The photos above and below are of the elevator in Domain.

Hi Steve,

That little elevator at McTavish looks like a former Elephant Fertilizers (Cominco) elevator. Is it being used for grain, or still in fertilizer service?

I plan on doing a post on these little gems, because they were ubiquitous in many prairie towns.

Hi Eric, I have never been to McTavish so I'm not sure. I did find this photo which is clearly a different elevator. The photo must be old because it says Agricore United... which is now Viterra. Viterra's site doesn't list any presence in McTavish any more so the elevator must be gone now.

Yes, please do a post on elevators!
