Fine Looking Water Tower

Our town water tower has a shiny new paint job and it's looking good. It's hard to see from here but the emblem is our eight flags logo. I think that my favorite water tower is the one alongside I-95 in Gaffney, SC that's painted like a big peach. At least I think it's Gaffney. Here's another cool one.

Revised on 7/15 to add links.

As a younger man, I had often thought about compiling a gallery of interesting water towers. My favorites were all in Wisconsin. One near Madison had a ladder that went straight up to the peak on just one side of the tower. From a distance it looked like a guy with a Mohawk. Another in Wauwatosa looks like a spaceship--I think there are 12 legs and an oblong holding tank that almost looks like a flying saucer. From the bridge in Wauwatosa, there are more than 10 water towers visible in the distance. Water towers are cool!

Mike,

Your comment got me to thinking how interesting water towers can be so I've gone back and added a couple of links to the post. Thanks for the story.
