Sunset on the Prairies

Fine Art, Gravelbourg, Historical Site, Landscapes, Rural Decay

This grain elevator in Gravelbourg, SK is the only remaining elevator (in Saskatchewan) built by the Saskatchewan and Western Elevator Company and is one of the few remaining elevators built prior to the 1920’s. Many of these grain elevators have been dismantled and removed from the landscape. Railway lines are being abandoned and the railways want them removed for safety reasons. As a result, southern Saskatchewan is losing another length of track. The Canadian Pacific line, Gravelbourg subdivision, is being removed for salvage.

It will truly be the end of an era, when all of this gone.

Entranced by rural and urban decay. I am drawn to these forlorn sites because they emote conflicting sentiments of beauty and disintegration.

    Oh … I think this was similar to what I bought at the Festival of Trees!

  2. Yes, this is the one. I was really happy how that block mount turned out. I will have to try printing more of my images in this format I think.
