The Columbia Grain Elevator stands partially demolished in October, 1972.  Revealed as a vertical shed. Note inlet and the mountain backdrop. This slide we read has been kept in frozen storage conditions. (CVA)

Rusted and digital the road has given way to greening. Monumental now the structure serves aptly as a place to revisit.

Mr. Higgins and companion sit in view for historical reasons. Somewhere on Lasqueti Island the sun in the decade of the 1920's was pleasing. She is at least half his age, kneeling no seat. Tongue and groove decking, dog sweats tongue. (VPL)

Decades pass only now this shed is clad in yellow cedar reverse board and batten. No tongue only groove as gestured and pointed.

Gutted the shell stands exposed to static upgrading. Crenellations to be retained while mullions crumble and make way for double glazing. Kitsilano High School is one of the few to be spared in part.

Appealing is the concave slope. The sheet hanging in mid-autumn lends a bucolic summer edge.  Equal to the bugles and left/right marchers striding further upwind, jets soared, Stellar Jays squawked.
