This photo shows the old concrete reservoir and the 1929 elevated steel water tower. Bruno Bargetzi, the city’s former water superintendent wrote this on the back of the photo: “This is our new standpipe where I pump the water in and the city gets it out of there by gravity. That four-cornered building you see on the side of it is the old water tank, which we don’t use anymore. The new tank is 109 feet high. How would like to crawl up there? I have to go up there once a week... It is 75 feet to where the catwalk is. It hold 100,000 gallons of water.”
