Mural Monday – Trochu (2)
Trochu artist Eldon Walls is the painter of four more murals that I photographed on our visit to the town in August.
B. G. Mathieu built his electronics shop on this site in 1949 and did business until 1974.
Nuns of St. Mary’s. Caring for our community since 1911.
Harvesting − a horse-drawn binder cuts the grain and ties it into sheaves.
More harvest scenes.
Top: a threshing machine extracts the grain from the harvested grain. It blows the chaff onto a straw pile while a truck receives the grain kernels.
Bottom: More horse-drawn binders. The man in the foreground stacks the sheaves in a pyramid shape (called stooks) so they will dry.
These paintings add a lot to a small town and take us back to a simpler, slower time!
