Clemenceau Federal

Welcome to Clemenceau!

The Federal grain elevator is still standing and I was happy to see that!

I love the way this one has aged...peeling paint and all.

This must have been the elevator operator's minty green no less.

I don't think a CN train has stopped here in a long time.

The main industry of the town was lumber but after a forest fire in the early 1940's that soon came to an end.  I grew up in the southeast corner of the province so just the idea of a lumber industry in Saskatchewan was surprising.

The "Federal" and "Clemenceau" names are still legible...barely.

A few shots on my way out of town and towards Hudson Bay...that's Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan by the way.
