great shots again

I do have a question about the last one though.... I`m sure there`s a language barrier or something, but... the Cockshutt next to the co-operative ass....?

Is that a Canadian thing we should know about...?

Third shot: With the rail cars, it must be market day for your... hogs?

Semi circle: I see several kids among the animals and several women in the crowd. I'm guessing, 4H calf club.

Cockshutt was a Canadian farm equipment manufacturer and they clearly have an alliance with the local co-operative. This was common in the day. The next town might be aligned with a different manufacturer, and so on and so on and so on...

Yes it's a Canadian thing; Co-op would buy Cocksutt tractors and machinery, paint them rust coloured and sell them as 'Co-op's'.
And Dutch, because I've seen the twinkle in your eye every time you have trouble with the English language, I get the feeling that your language barrier is NOT formidable, ----- but it gives me a chuckle.

More slides.

Today, we visit Dozer's tiny hamlet as it was in the '50s...













I've never been to Dozerville, so I took a virtual tour with Google... near as I can tell, the house no longer exists but the church still stands, just a stone's throw from Dozer's current location.

This is Canada's bread basket for sure, accompanied by large portions of Manitoba and Alberta.

I have 50 or 60 more of these slides and I will post them all eventually. Of course, I'm constantly collecting pictures because I'm an addict.
