Excellent composition and detail here, your narrative is very interesting and it adds greatly to the story behind this image. This is a beautiful capture of these buildings and I love the mood of this scene Clifford. Can't believe I almost missed it though..

Thank you Heater for your kind comments. This farm is quite interesting and was very historical in its development of the prairies.

Thanks so much Jane, it was amazing to look into the history of these places.

These properties which included a home, barn and other buildings provided the opportunity for those interested in starting this way of life to see all that was required to successfully farm on the Canadian Prairie. The CPR established these sites along their rail line so that the crops could then be transported on their rails to market and also they could deliver any items needed for the establishment of these farms and the subsequent towns to follow in the area.
