Byers Flour Mills

Once again I think I have outdone myself. These elevators took nearly 5 hours to draw, cut out and put together.

These two elevators were located in Camorse, Alberta, but were destroyed in the fall of 2006. I didn't even know until I found out from a friend this spring. Myself and a friend drove over there, and was not impressed to see those elevators were gone.

These elevators made the famous Sunny Boy Cereal, Sunshine Flour and Rosebud Pancake Flour.

Been working on paper elevators

Since June, I have been working on paper foldup grain elevators. These four are based on elevators located in Rowley, Alberta
(The Searle and Alberta Wheat Pool / UGG twin elevators), the P&H is based from the one from Sharples (although the white annex has been removed at the real one), and the white Alberta Wheat Pool is from Kirkpatrick, west of Drumheller. The real one has no annexes.
