#watertowerwednesday “Watershed” by World Famous Artist: @randywalkerarts , celebrates #WestMemphis its history by using this 140-foot tall artifact as a symbol of the past and the present. The installation is based on careful study of the existing structure, using the tower’s geometry as a framework to reveal new shapes and unexpected connections. Twenty-three miles of stainless steel cable were suspended from the underside of the catwalk and anchored to a new concrete bench that encircles the point where the City’s first water supply entered the ground. From this circular gathering space, viewers can peer up at the cables as they shimmer in the wind. Aluminum tubes, painted in the City’s color scheme, are placed on the cables, and can be heard gently clanging. The installation is illuminated so that the cables appear as water cascading from the base of the tank to the ground. 📸: Randy Walker Arts

#watertowerwednesday #historic #landmarked 🚰💧 Southern Pacific Railroad provided water for trains and the local school with its water tanks, the last of which has become a landmark of sorts in Maricopa. It Held over 1 million gallons of water! The water was taken from one well by an electric pump. The pump was driven by a very large one-cylinder engine with a large flywheel (approximately 8 feet in diameter). Want to know more details?

#WaterTowerWednesday : Um den Begriff #Industriekultur zu erklären, bietet sich die Betrachtung von #Wassertürmen an. Diese zweckmäßigen #Ingenieursbauten , die zumeist der Speicherung von und der Versorgung mit #Wasser dien(t)en, erfuhren durch ihre Erbauer zumeist eine weit über Ihre #Funktion hinausgehende, dem jeweiligen #Zeitgeist entsprechende bauliche #Gestaltungen. Ein eindrückliches Beispiel hierfür ist der, wie ein solitär stehender #Bergfried aussehende 29 Meter über den Wäschberg hinausragende, Wasserturm von Bräunsdorf in #Sachsen (erbaut 1906). Prädikat: erhaltenswert. #homage #berndbecher #hillabecher #becher # foto #schwarzweiss #industriearchitektur #industriefotografie #watertower #fotografie #vintage #heritage #industrial #architecture #germany #bauen

We could see this intriguing tower from a distance when driving in & out of the caravan park where we were staying.. I was determined to find it & have a look! We stumbled upon it by accident when having a ramble around Littlestone.. for some reason I thought it was a bit further down the coast! Well I didn’t know a lot about this outstanding water tower apart from the fact that I would absolutely love to live in it! This 120 ft water tower on Madeira Road was built in 1890 by Henry Stubbs to provide water to his properties in Littlestone, including Littlestone Golf Club & his proposed housing development. He wanted to turn Littlestone into a major resort & embarked on an ambitious building programme. His plans for a pier were not realised, however & it was eventually built at Eastbourne instead. The military used the tower during World War 2 as a lookout post. It fell into disrepair & this stunning Grade 2 listed building now serves as a residence! #watertower #watertowerpics #watertowersofinstagram #watertowerwednesday #grade2listed #grade2listedbuilding #watertowerresidences #quirkyhomes #unusualhomes #redbrick #littlestoneonsea #seaside #kent #kentvillage #historicbuilding #placesofinterest

#watertowerwednesday - Water is a precious resource in the village of Magdalena in Soccorro County, New Mexico; population 882 (2017). There was a severe shortage in 2013 due to a failure of the main well, which required extreme conservation measures in addition to the necessity to haul in water 25 miles away from Soccorro. A subsequent failure occured in 2016. Nevertheless, the residents of Magdalena persevered through their creative and responsible use of water, and were recognized as water conservation role models in the 2014 High Country News article; "Living with less water: Lessons for Californians – and the rest of us – from a New Mexico village".

“She stood over the thing, panting. Behind her was a scar in the earth longer than a chain of football fields. The bus closed its doors and departed, each passenger glued to the windows with their eyes locked on the giant woman that had saved them.” .
