    Man Bites Dog: Downtown Water Tank To Be Saved
    We've lamented before about how advances in modern plumbing and fire suppression technology are stripping so many of Chicago's buildings of their rooftop water tanks. Many of the remaining tanks we see adorning the roofs of the city's brick-and-timber buildings are a hundred years old or more. Repairs are expensive.

  • Sheila A. Donovan Have been an owner at the Stratford since 2001.

    I adore water tanks! They are historical and rare. Glad that this one was saved.
