Storehouse of Isda by WayneBenedet Storehouse of Isda by WayneBenedet
I am sure there are other stone granaries but it is not something that I have encountered in Manitoba before.

Ha! Maybe somewhere else in the world... I don't see any around here, and I never saw any in Iowa. :D

I have seen them in Southern Ontario, they also build circular barns down there.

Very interesting. What nationality first settled there? Like in my part of the Midwest it was mostly Scandinavian and German with a little Dutch thrown in. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the architecture of the countries left behind.
Hugs,

Likely you are right. There is a bit of history about the area, but nothing specific that I could find about the nationalities of the settlers.

Sure don't see them often anywhere in the North American continent (europe mostly, I think) that's for sure. This is pretty darn cool 8-)

from what you say John, I wonder if there is not am immigration connection. eg: a family immigrated to canada and built in the European way. That seems to have happened with a number of groups.

Very impressive structure - I assume it was rather used for storage than for living?

I can understand the sentiment. But your photos are so interesting, and it's an important (and disappearing) Canadian / prairie theme. I hope they can reach a wide audience!

we shall see on that too. "Voice of The Pioneer" starts on Friday and it will tour for a little over a year. Beyond that I do not know.

i like the shapes and colors and line made with roof of granary and trees ... and hehe the way its partially buried already ... we had a lot of sod roof houses down here prior to the dust bowl that looked as if they were built half into hills

even after looking up Isda I am at a loss because there number of routes to go with acronym including Greece financial troubles and agriculture, traders in swaps marketing agreements lol

I guess I was pretty obscure here, but I did not intend it to be so.

isda is the angel of nourishment ... hence a granary.

I have to admit I don't know who or what Isda is. I have a limited but broad education in liberal arts. Thus, I have missed a lot of finer points in history, culture, other subjects; however, I love to learn so will be looking it up and getting back to you. =)
