Only 2 buildings remain from the thriving community of Galilee, Saskatchewan: a general store and one house. At it's peak in the mid 1920s, the town boasted a number of stores and residences, an elevator, a school, a church, a blacksmith shop,and a post office. People began moving away in 1938, and when the school closed in 1956, the town quickly became deserted.

Both shots taken with a Canon 6D. Lens: 24-105 f/4L; both @24mm. Raw to jpeg conversion with Skylum Aurora, 2018.

The pic of the house is not very good. There was a steep ditch running in the front of the house and trees growing very close to the house with poor views, so the pic I obtained was from the only decent angle available.

Thanks for looking.

It’s hard to imagine what the area was like when the lawn was active. I think you did a good job of conveying the feeling of abandonment and deterioration.

Thank you for your kind comment, Carol. I tried to find some old photos of this town in order to increase my overall perception of the town's landscape. No luck. But yes, there certainly is a lot of deterioration.

Thank you for your comment, Hal. It's funny you should mention Halloween as there are stories of ghosts that haunt the old town site. There have also been "sightings" of the dead on the road that runs by the town site. Yikes! It's a good thing I was there in the day time.
