November 16, 2018: Grenfell, Saskatchewan

 

I spotted this interesting Tourist Information building while driving across the prairies on the TransCanada Highway this summer.  Grenfell is a small town in Saskatchewan that cleverly made its TI look like a prairie grain elevator.  As we've previously pointed out, the real counterparts of this structure are disappearing prairie icons.  I enjoyed the row of smaller grain elevators behind the TI, which you can see better (to the left) in the photo below.

As I'd pulled off the highway, I though I'd drive around the town to see what's there.  Nothing much, really.  A nice historic mural on one of the buildings...

And it being the prairies, no town would be complete without a modern grain elevator made of concrete.
