Historical Photographs of Aberdeen
The hamlet of Aberdeen began in 1904, and the railway arrived in 1905. It became a village in 1907, and after a period of ups and downs, it became a town in 1988.
The aerial photograph above shows six grain elevators in Aberdeen in the 1950s. The elevator across from the train station is a Saskatchewan Wheat Pool elevator. Next in the row are two National elevators, followed by a Pioneer Grain Co. Ltd. elevator. The farthest elevator appears to be another Pool elevator. There is a UGG elevator on its own spur behind the main elevator row.
