Long Description:
This would seem to be Alberta Wheat Pool #4, the previous three all built much earlier and all long gone. Built in 1968, this is a definite late comer to Beiseker's elevator row, and the sole remaining elevator. It's a single composite wood crib elevator flanked by six steel bins/annexes, four to the north and two to the south. Though very similar to the old elevators of yesteryear, it shows some distinct differences, particularly in the cupola and head. The first four were added in 1990 and 1996, the last two at a later date. It's still in use, privately owned by whom we don't know, as it's no longer a Pool Elevator.
