Expired Film Project: Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota Grain Elevators

Admittedly, I have spent more time looking at the history and nuances of rural Canadian grain trade in the Prairie Provinces than the American Midwest.

This photo collection, at this juncture, has no research and is purely driven by aesthetics. My immediate observation when determining photo subjects was to document grain and flour elevators in the United States that are built in a similar architectural style to the Prairie Sentinel-style elevators that have become an iconic symbol of the Canadian Prairie.
