POSTCARD

Date: Unposted, but written note dated July 18, 1914.

Publisher / Photographer: Unidentified

Notation: On October 18, 1913, within a month of first being filled with grain, the brand new CPR grain elevator began to sink on the west side. When finished, it had sunk 24 feet, leaving the structure 27 degrees off centre. Happily, by October 27, 1914 it had been straightened and secured.
