This is really cool. Great idea, Sheryl! It will be interesting to see what other "landmarks" have come and gone!

They have removed almost all of our water towers. The skyline just isn't the same.

There are still a few of these i my travel area.

That is so sad. I love water towers, I think they're such icons of American cities.

More than plenty of water towers here! A big one - or two or three - in each village (subdivision) and a small one in each back yard! I agree they make a nice addition to a small town skyline. Nice that this one was captured for posterity.
