    'Prairie Sky' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    As magnificent as the Canadian Rockies are, so are the grand and inspiring skies of the Canadian Prairies. From the subtle skies of a seemingly featureless cloudy day to the puffy cumulus clouds of a summer afternoon to the more dramatic skies of a spectacular sunrise or sunset, they are like ever-changing colors on a living canvas.

    The breeze too is part of the prairie experience, as are the sounds and the scents. The view is unobstructed because, on the prairie, one can see forever and ever and ever … almost to the next grain elevator a dozen kilometers or so away. This is truly the Land of the Living Skies.

    'Inglis Prairie Giants' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    Inglis, Manitoba is home to the Five Prairie Giants – the Inglis Elevators. These prairie sentinels are preserved as the Inglis Grain Elevators National Historic Site. The elevators preserved are the Paterson elevator, the National elevator, the United Grain Growers elevator and two Reliance elevators. These five original elevators were built in 1922, the year the railway was established in the town of Inglis.

    This site represents one of the most important periods in the development of the Canadian grain industry. Rows of these iconic architectural symbols of the Prairies were prominently seen in most prairie towns but many have now disappeared. Of the nearly 6,000 grain elevators that once towered over the Canadian Prairie, only about 850 grain elevators remain.
