Thomas Hill Standpipe

Thursday Challenge: Container

The Thomas Hill Standpipe is the holding tank for water on the west side of the city. Local historian, photographer, promoter and Internet wonk Ryan Robbins gives it a better write up than I ever could for anyone interested.

I'll just call it one tall drink of water.

  1. Love the way you can track the internal staircase by the row of windows.

  2. What a cool looking water tower, who'd thunk it? Looks more like a windmill that lost its sails.

  3. Hey, didn't I drive you up there that night?? During senior league world series!! You were so excited when you realized it was lit up, then I almost backed off the hill!! I love this pic though, especially cause it was the first "road trip" I went on!!
