Description
Black and white photograph of the harbour in Midland, ON featuring the grain elevator. Several railroad cars sit at the base of the elevator. Another set of railroad cars lies along the main wharf behind stacks of lumber.
Notes
The Midland elevator was built in 1881 and burned on 24 April 1904 according to Geo. R. Osborne, 'Midland and her Pioneers (1939; reprint ed. Mika Publishing., Belleville, 1975). This illustrates the elevator after it was enlarged in 1886/87 and before the next elevator was constructed in 1898.
