This elevator was the last one built in Grenfell, SK.  I fact, the one part (can't recall which) was moved from a short distance (as in 100 yards to butt up to the new one).  The foreman for the building of the part that was later moved gave me the scrap wood from the job.  He told us to come every Tuesday and Thursday evening and we could have all the scraps laying around.  We hauled thirteen 3/4 ton truck loads away.  Each load was as much a we dared put on the poor truck.  The wood kept my house and office warm!!
