After 80 years of service the 75,000 gallon water tank on Queen Street was deconstructed yesterday. The tank had a distinctive profile, visible at a distance in the Tidewater landscape. I hope I have a picture somewhere of the entire construction. It was a styling tank, it had a roof like the tin man’s cap, a lightening rod and a circumferential walkway with a balustrade.
Above a section of one tank leg and a lateral support are visible.
