Silos

I took this pic in January of 2011 showing silos in the Junction neighbourhood that were constructed in 1893 and used for some of the milling operations served by the adjoining railway line. In recent years the silos have been used by a cement company. Tomorrow I will show you the silos as they looked a week ago.

ooooh I'm intrigued - do they look very different??

You've reminded me that I have a silo photo somewhere in my archives that I've never posted. Can't wait to see the recent shot.

Oh me too, looking forward to seeing them now.. If it was Monday tomorrow I'd say they might be covered in murals Pat :)

Looking forward to the comparison.

William Kendall said...

I'm wondering what tomorrow will bring too- demolition, perhaps?

I'm reminded of a similar setup in the Streetsville part of Mississauga, though I'm not sure if the silos are still up.

Sounds like they have been repurposed. That's a good thing.

To me this looks like the countryside, not a city!

I am curious what is going to look different about them. Looking forward to tomorrow.

Taken For Granted said...

A poet, not sure who, referred to these silos as, "the cathedrals of the prairies." That seems appropriate. Glad they are still being used.

Lois said...

I don't think I have ever seen so many silos together like that! Very interesting.

Randy said...

They sure are tall.

Jack said...

We will just have to wait, won't we?

And if Birdman is coming, he hasn't told me about it.

Bet it's gonna be good!
