Reinforced Concrete Grain Silos A General and Historical Survey

In his paper The Handling and Storing of Grain with special reference to Canadian Methods, read at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London, on January 27th last, Mr. H. H. Broughton, M.I.Mech.E., emphasised he importance of grain silos by reminding us that the wheat of which the bread is made comes from the ends of the earth into this country at the rate of about 120,000 tons per week, and that, if the machinery responsible for such movement had to fail for any cause for a time reckoned in weeks, famine would inevitably result in this country because Britain has safe storage accommodation for only a small fraction of the wheat she consumes.
