18.31: Highway 3 at Pilot Mound

PTH 3 1 is the most southerly east/west route in Manitoba. Several north/south sections break its east/west progress. This high oblique photo taken looking southwest shows PTH 3 bypassing Pilot Mound 2 to the southwest. The CP railway line 3 passes through the town on its way southwest to Crystal City. A single elevator 4 still existed in 1984. Other common features of prairie towns are a round-roofed building 5 housing a rink; a racetrack 6 inside which is a baseball diamond 7; a flat-roofed building, probably a school 8; and a large building in the northwest 9, probably a seniors residence or possibly a motel?
