A brief history of the Grain Elevators of Western Canada
The grain elevators in Western Canada have for years been referred to as prairie icons, prairie cathedrals or prairie sentinels and have become a visual symbol of what farming in this part of the country is all about. There were as many
as 5758 in 1933. These grain elevators dominated the prairie landscape for more than a century with every community having at least one.
They were the first step in a grain trading process that moves the grain from producer to worldwide markets. The first grain elevator was a strictly utilitarian building considered by anyone that viewed them to be anything but that.
They were designed for one purpose, getting the grain into railway boxcars. The farmers, who at first shoveled their grain into 2-bushel sacks which they then transported to a loading platform along the rail line. There, they emptied the sacks into a waiting boxcar, a back-breaking and inefficient job. They needed something much better if the west was to grow. A means of storing and shipping grain quickly, This brought about the small, one-storey wood frame warehouses erected by farmers. The railways demanded larger, vertical warehouses that could take advantage of gravity to empty the grain and a mechanism known as the "leg" was devised, an endless belt with cups or scoops attached, was devised to load the grain in the elevators. This leg is what gave the name to and determined the shape of the grain elevator.
Today many of these grain elevators are being dismantled and removed from the landscape. Railway lines are being abandoned and the railways want them removed for safety reason.
Many of the grain elevators shown on this site are no longer in existence.
It's just another sign of progress.
I hope that you enjoy your visit to this site and can appreciate
Art Grive's work in keeping some of these alive.
For a more detailed history of the Grain Elevators plese go to the following site .
The Canadian Encyclopedia (Grain Elevators)
"Our Changing Landscape" webpage of the Royal Alberta Museum states that by 1934, the number of grain elevators in Alberta peaked at 1,755. 
An inventory and research undertaken by Judy Larmour in 2002 for the Heritage Resource Management Branch, Alberta Community Development , revealed that 244 were extant. When this was updated in 2005, it was found that of these, only 180 remain. http://www.grainelevatorsalberta.ca/

Federal Grain was formed in 1929, when nine companies merged together. They were: the Federal Grain Co., Consolidated Elevator Co., Northwestern Elevator Co., Stewart Elevator Ltd., Topper Grain Co.,
International Elevator Co., McLaughlin Elevator Co., Brooks Elevator Co., and Union Grain Company Ltd.

Alberta Pacific became a wholly owned subsidiary of Federal in 1943, and the Searle Grain Co. amalgamated with Federal in 1967. Finally in 1972, Federal elevators were sold to the three provincial wheat pools: Alberta Wheat Pool, Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, and Manitoba Wheat Pool.

It is believed that these grain elevators were ;located in Innisfree AB.
This first one does look like the one that was standing in 2012.
These pictures were submitted by Tim Croft from the U.K. and they were taken by his father in law, Sydney Taylor in 1942 when he was on his way 
to Raf Penhold (red deer) flight training school.

 Still in use today, the Lethbridge, Alberta 17-storey Alberta Terminals Ltd grain elevator is the tallest building in town. Built in the 1930s on contract by the Canadian Government, it sat well outside the business district but today it is located along Crownest Trail, a busy thoroughfare in North Lethbridge. Despite still being painted for Alberta Terminals Ltd, the facility is today owned and operated by Cargill..

 Nanton AB
 Photo: Massey F. Jones
 Situated about half-way between Calgary and Lethbridge Alberta, Nanton is an agricultural town, mostly reputed for a museum, containing one of only 4 Lancaster bombers still in existence. See an excellent map of the area at http://www.bombercommandmuseum.ca/map.html In 2001, the CPR abandoned a sizeable portion of the Macleod Sub., between Aldersyde and Fort Macleod and the town's grain elevators became slated for demolition.  The Nanton & District Grain Elevator Historical & Cultural Society was formed and purchased the town's 3 elevators, repainted them and made them available for public touring inside and out in summer; as the Canadian Grain Elevator Discovery Centre. A tour takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour. http://www.canadiangrainelevatordiscoverycentre.com/home.html

The two pictures shown here were taken from a moving bus on Highway 2 North on April 13th, 2014. The orange elevator formerly belonged to Pioneer Grain and the green ones to the Alberta Wheat Pool. The paint colour helped identify the elevator's owner from a distance and the town's name was always painted boldly on at least one elevator as a guide to railway crews and others, most always being the tallest building in town and a source of pride for the company and the town.

 In order to preserve a bit of railway history, a cattle car was placed on static display between the orange and green elevators. The stock car, built by the Canadian Car & Foundry in March 1958 as CP 277127, became CP 278504 after renumbering. Several good pictures of the elevators front and back are available at Google Images.

New grain elevators were constructed in 1948 north of the station and in the late 1950s, more elevators were built on the south end of the yard. 
Five grain elevators were demolished (three on the east side of the yards and two on the west side) by 1992.
(source: http://www.forthjunction.com/structures.htm). 
Following the CPR/VIA station closure in 1991 and CPR facilities relocation on the west side of the city, all tracks were removed.
VIA passenger service had already ended in 1985, after 94 years. The CPR/VIA station is shown on my stations page.
This view looking north, was taken from from a nearby bridge during the summer of 1990.

The back of the elevator, formerly at Shonts; a village on Highway 14, near Ryley in East Central Alberta between Edmonton and Calgary, in an almost "natural" setting within Calgary's Heritage Park. 

The elevator, with was built in 1909 by the Security Elevator Co. of Winnipeg and has a capacity of 25,000 bushels, which is less than a quarter of the capacity of many of today's elevators. The Alberta Wheat Pool purchased the elevator in 1947, and in 1967 donated two-thirds of the cost of its restoration and relocation to Heritage Park.

A comment on a photo taken in 2010 and posted at http://www.flickr.com/photos/canadagood/4419989890/, mentions that this Heritage Park elevator is "the old one" eventually replaced at Shonts by
"the new one",  featuring virtually the same design.

The former elevator at Shonts, Alberta, now displayed at Calgary's Heritage Park. The Security Elevator Company Ltd. was formed to build grain elevators on the newly constructed Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (today part of CN) in the Canadian Prairies and it went out of business in the late 1920s. The Shonts elevator is the very last elevator so painted. The silver building on the left houses the motor, which activates one the belts working the grain augers in the elevator. 

Behind the elevator is part of a "Chinook Arch" cloud formation, occurring only in certain parts of the Rockies, in the far background. The former elevator at Shonts, Alberta, now displayed at Calgary's Heritage Park.

 Part of the Shonts Elevator display at Heritage Park in Calgary, showing a horse-drawn wooden grain wagon, tilted back on the weighing scale for unloading. View the floor grate, which accepts the grain into the augers, where they are then lifted into the proper bins. 
Everything has been restored to working order. Almost all the controls were operated by wooden levers. When the elevator is open (May-Oct), it is attended to by a staff interpreter in bib overalls. 
A brass plaque screwed outside the door states:
"The  Alberta Wheat Pool donated this elevator to Heritage Park in 1967".

TROCHU ALBERTA

Trochu is located in East Central Alberta approximately 80 kilometers southeast of Red Deer. It is named after Armand Trochu, the settler who founded the St. Anne Ranch Trading Company on the present site of the town in 1903. Trochu has a population of about 1000, the main language of the town in English and the main business is farming. 
At one time, the town had 8 wooden grain elevators and a seed cleaning plant. Farmers take their harvested seeds to the cleaning plant operator, who removes the  impurities (chaff etc) from the seeds, grades them by type and weight and returns them to the farmer for replanting.

Among the elevator operators were Alberta Wheat Pool, Cargill, and United Grain Growers (most, undergoing company name changes through mergers over the years). The first elevator was built by Security Grain in 1913 and it wasn't until about 1916-1927 that others were built. A couple of the elevators in Trochu burned down at some time in the past but were rebuilt. According to recent research, only one is now left.  All photos in this section were taken September 15th, 1987 by Massey (indicated) and his father-in-law, an avid modeler and these show several angles of the same building.
