I LOVE that modern cities still use the old technology of rooftop water tanks, even if new buildigs cover 'em up. I love NY's water tanks, esp. a whole skyline full of them.
I'm not alone.
From Shelf Awareness: Eric Miller, partner and co-owner of Miller Trade Book Marketing, the Midwest rep group set up Wicker Park Press, which has published three titles with Academy Chicago. In December, on his own, he publishes Water Tanks of Chicago: A Vanishing Urban Legacy by Larry W. Green ($19.95, 9780978967604), a paperback that chronicles a sometimes unnoticed aspect of the Windy City's skylines: water tanks, some of which date back to the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, that have "a lot of cultural significance" and have been nominated for landmark status. "This is book is part of a push to preserve these towers," Miller told Shelf Awareness.
