Crawford's Used Books, Perdue, Saskatchewan

If words had weight, those in the roughly 300,000 volumes at Crawford's Used Books in Perdue would make for hefty reading. Housed in the former Merchants Bank of Canada brick building at the corner of 7th Street and J Avenue, the majority of Ralph Crawford's massive collection lines the shelves, hardwood floor and window wells, even spilling into the entryway. Three semi-trailers and an antique transit bus hold the overflow.
