Days Gone By

Old wooden grain bins


Wooden Grain Bins

This photograph of two old wooden grain bins symbolize the history of agriculture in western Canada.  They played a huge role in storing a farmer’s crop after harvest decades ago.

As a result, there’s no shingles left on them, blown away by the prairie winds. Some may consider these structures as deserted eye sores. But for me, they are a symbol of agriculture’s past. The hard work it took to grow a crop during those times. There are memories like these that pepper the Canadian prairie landscape.
