This row of elevators still stand at Mossleigh, a 45 minute drive SE of Calgary, or they did last time I was through there. They’re some of the last remaining elevators around, and they’re starting to look scruffy and uncared for, but I so enjoy their familiar profile against the sky.
The landscape certainly isn’t the same without them….the prairie towns look like derelicts, missing their front teeth;a gaping hole where the elevators once stood. “Progress” feels like a swear word sometimes.
