Photos of the Grain Trade

At one time the Lakehead grain industry employed over 3000 people in various aspects of the trade. Grain handling and shipping were front and centre in citizens' minds--and they took pictures. Sadly, these photos are disappearing along with memories.We want to halt this loss, so we began a photo collection. The collection includes elevator construction, elevator workers, elevators, elevator equipment, ships, and railcars going to elevators. You get the idea. If you have an individual photo to share or a collection you think we would be interested in, please contact us.
