It's really charming.
Wouldn't it be fun if the water was still running in it?

I guess it does not serve its original pupose anymore. It makes for a lovely decoration though!

Wouldn't it be great if all utilities were constructed with such beauty?

Lois said...

How nice that it is still there and so beautifully taken care of!

Terrific captures as always and, yes, it would be great if all utilities these days were constructed with the same beauty! Don't think it's very likely though!

The restoration made it look nice and new again.
I found it fascinating how large and above ground the “pipes” were back then.

More sympathetic than the "renovations" happening in my town.
