Water in the Sky

Der Wasserturm. Mannheim, Germany

Isn’t it beautiful?

I know that Seattle, Washington, has some interesting water towers. The one in Volunteer Park on Capital Hill reminds me of a fortress, but unfortunately I don’t have a picture of it.

Out here on the other side of the country where I currently live, there are so many interesting shapes and designs within a mere hour of my house.

I think these two look like alien spaceships.

And this one? What do you think?

This last one reminds me of the many water towers seen in small towns across the Midwestern U.S., with local school pride on display.

  1. Lovely! Each has it’s own unique appeal, but I like the one from Germany.

  2. Cool. They really do look like UFO space ships.

  3. I like the one near Hamilton the best! Cool shape 🙂

    btw…no chocolate last night 😦

  4. When was the one in Mannheim built? They must have used steam engines to fill it at the beginning…

  5. That first one really is lovely!

    Who knew that water towers were really works of art?

  6. I would have never thought “water tower” if I had seen the German water tower without a label.

    We don’t have water towers in SoCal, so I am fascinated by them too.
