Manitoba Business: Northern Elevator Company

This Winnipeg-based company was established in September 1893 through the merger of five smaller companies. Its initial major shareholders included Nicholas Bawlf, Rodmond P. Roblin, Arthur Atkinson, Samuel Clark, George Crowe, and James Mitchell. By the turn of the 20th century, it operated 92 country elevators, handling about 2.4 million bushels of the annual grain production on the prairies.
