There is a beautiful water tower located in Reservoir Park on Grand Blvd. in St. Louis. It is actually a standpipe to relieve water pressure with a beautiful tower built around it. It was constructed in 1898 and if you’d like to hear more about the history of this gorgeous monument, go here and poke around a bit! You can climb the stairs to the top where there is an observation room. I did this when 7 months pregnant once. I don’t recommend that.
My daughter took some photos a few months ago and you just might recognize something in the background of one of these photos! I promise that ALL photos are property of MotherCrab, not another St. Louis photographer.
