Survivor (2096) by WayneBenedet Survivor (2096) by WayneBenedet
This elevator is located on the east side of Highway 242 between La Riviere and  Snowflake, Manitoba.  I am guessing that it was built in the late 1800,s or early 1900's, though to date I have not been able to get any real history on it.

This is not really a house.  It is a grain elevator, but I suppose it could me modified to be used as a house.  It would be a very solid home.

I tend to drive this way a couple of times a year, so if the light is interesting, I take a shot.

Very excellent. It has lovely horizontal lines, which give a calming feel, as well as the diagonal and vertical lines, which give excitement. This gives the focal point (the building) more attention, and in a way, because of it's lines, it contrasts with the background, while still blending in. The color also contrasts very well. Awesome work, it shows much thought and precision. :)

This reminded me of a ghost town in eastern North Dakota called Roseville (?) Nothing was still standing but an old wooden grain elevator and what I thought could have been a one-room schoolhouse. This was in 1993. Maybe I will scan the photos so I can post them.

elevators were built of 2x4 or 2x6 lying on the length.  That was the walls were solid wood either 4 or 6 inches thick.  It makes them durable, and very hard to take down.
