Film Noir Nostalgia Series, Grain Elevators Mossleigh Alberta

Mossleigh is a hamlet in southern Alberta, Canada within Vulcan County. It is located on Highway 24, approximately 63 kilometres (39 mi) southeast of Calgary.

A farm family in the Mossleigh area of Southern Alberta is doing all it can to keep their local grain elevators towering over the prairies.

Eric Donovan and his cousin purchased two of the three aging structures when the original owner had no more use for them. Now they're being restored to working condition.

 The elevators were built in 1930, and were in very bad shape when I visited them in 2010, as you can see on my photographs, 2 are still standing today, I am hoping to go back this spring to see if they were restored, I hope so, the grain elevators are part of our history and should be preserved. The original prairie grain elevators are becoming fewer and further between - especially rows of them.

I used "Film Noir" black and white preset for this project to bring back the nostalgia.
