Water Tower declared historic!

I’ve lived in San Diego for almost 26 years always in neighborhoods around the North Park water tower.  It and the Georgia Street bridge are what made North Park possible.  I’ve always been concerned that it would be torn down for some practical reason.  That, along with its wonderful physical presence, is why I’ve spent so much time photographing it over the last few years.  I was so happy to read today that the California State Historic Resources Commission has selected it as a historical landmark.  It has also been recommended by the Commission to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Great news for San Diego!  UPDATE— on June 25, 2013 the water tower was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.  For more info go the the North Park Historical Society website.
