Jim A Pearson, a giant in the Canadian grain elevator community, has died.
Jim produced several books in the Vanishing Sentinels series, featuring grain elevators in the Canadian prairie provinces, and was the admin of the corresponding Vanishing Sentinels Facebook group.
Jim was a big fan of Star Trek, and designed the USS Enterprise replica in the town of Vulcan, so it seems fitting to post a photo of the grain elevator in Vulcan, Alberta.
I never met Jim, but we corresponded numerous times, exchanging information and photos of grain elevators. He recently produced a book on the remaining grain elevators in Manitoba and gave me a large map in thanks for the information and photos I provided.
I’ve been moving pages from the Manitoba Grain Elevators site to here in preparation for retiring the MGE site. I think I will have to renew the domain name for one more year, but most of the pages on that site redirect to here now.
Thanks for reading, and special thanks to our contributors for submitting photos!
I want to thank Gary Rich, BW Bandy and Adam Bouvier for their latest contributions to Grain Elevators of Canada! Click on the elevator(s) below to see the full page with more photos and more information.
Thanks for contributing! If you would like to contribute, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with photos that you have taken and we can put them up!
