Long live the grain elevator (with video !)

Rivers MB

There was an interesting post on the National Film Board's blog by one of the programmers who gathers and posts the NFB's treasures on-line.

She was surprised at the latest video to take the 'most viewed' title. It's not one of the usual suspects like Log Drivers Waltz, but Grain Elevator, a circa 1981, fifteen-minute documentary shot inside a small-town Saskatchewan Pool elevator.

It goes to show that it's not always the 'sexy' buildings and events that get all the attention ! 

Last summer I did a post about grain elevators with some photos, links, stats on the number of elevators left. Check it out here if you would like.
