Description Picture of the Price's Hotel in Veteran, Alberta. On top of the hotel is a wind-powered generator, used to charge a bank of batteries, off which the entire hotel operated. At bedtime, things might get a little dim, but for several years, there was no real need to start the backup generator. The Hugh Miller auto is shown in front, 1945. Hugh Sharp (Hugh Miller's uncle) moved to Veteran, ALberta after he lived in Granite Falls.
