Link to:
Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in Waskada, on the CPR Lyleton Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Brenda-Waskada, was formerly operated by the Manitoba Pool Elevators. Its Pool corporate emblem was removed when it became part of the short-lived Agricore, whose signage remains on the building. It is no longer served by a railway line.
