'Bread of Life'

The window of an abandoned church in Dorothy, Alberta frames a grain elevator standing on the brilliantly sunlit banks of the Red Deer River.

The elevator once served the area on the east side of the river, prior to the removal of the rail line many years ago.

Dorothy is now a small 'ghost town' in the Badlands of Alberta, near Drumheller.



'A Path Forgotten'

This companion print to "Bread of Life", above, was taken of the exterior of the abandoned United Church in Dorothy, Alberta on New Year’s Eve, 1993.

It provides a glimpse of the simple values of the pioneers in early Alberta, and their determination to preserve them. The church still stands, although rapidly deteriorating from the elements.

Once a house which was moved from Finnegan to Dorothy, the structure served as a church during 1932 - 1961.

'Chinook Morning'

Taken on a quiet, chilly morning in October, 1993, this photograph of the two elevators in Dalemead, Alberta captures the essence of a peaceful rural Alberta morning...

A chinook arch in the sky, the Rocky Mountains in the far distance, and frost on the glistening rails.




This lone elevator has retained its original colours and stands isolated on private land, no longer served by the railway.

All Western Canadian elevators were originally this colour; it was not until the early 1960's that they were painted in the familiar distinctive colours of their owners.
