Vanishing Sentinels: Saskatchewan
 

I would also to announce my friend

and fellow photographer

Johnnie Bachusky’s new website





which celebrates Canada’s Ghost Towns.

Check it out at:

http://www.nobleghosts.com/index.html

This private project is another work in progress, and this web site is to showcase my photos of the grain elevators of Saskatchewan

and to give information on my new book,

“Vanishing Sentinels Volume II:

The Remaining Grain Elevators of Western Saskatchewan”.

At present I am working on Volume III which will detail the grain elevators or Eastern Saskatchewan!


I hope you enjoy looking at the photos I have taken since I started in September 2008, and please feel free to comment or leave information on grain elevators in your area that I may have missed in the book.


All of us have a stake in this important part of our history!

Please do not forget the Vanishing Sentinels Of The Saskatchewan Prairies!


Please feel free to email me at vanishingsentinels@gmail.com if you have any comments, suggestions or new elevator sightings in

Western and Eastern Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

PRAIRIE MARKERS

By Sharon Espeseth

(Barrhead, Alberta)


Elevators are landmarks

And totem poles of the past.

Prairie towns won’t be the same

Without their stately presence.
