Roland Park Water Tower

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 25 January 2013 in Architecture.

Roland Park Water Tower in Baltimore, MD. The tower was originally built in 1904-1905 to provide water for the adjacent areas, but fell into disuse when Baltimore City in 1930 moved to using reservoirs exclusively for its water supply. Over the years, the tower deteriorated. The Roland Park community is currently rehabilitating the tower.

Good strong shot, we have an old water tower here, it has now been converted to luxury apartments.

@Curly: The structures look somewhat similar. I think that they have so much more character than the ones of today that look like space ships that just landed!

Excellent angle and I like the screening effect of the bare branches.

This is a beautiful old water tower. I love the perspective and the details! Too bad we don't take the same care and attention to detail with our buildings now!
