Though it is not a tower itself, a hidden gem of Buenos Aires that it's also my personal favorite of the city: the Water Company Palace, a huge water tank with a neo-barroque facade

Y'all should check out Hilla and Bernd Becher's series of photographs of water towers.

Pilgrim psychiatric center - water tower

When I first saw this one I saved on my computer as "torre De Chirico", because to me it looks like a buliding taken from one of his paintings.

Wow, these are great. Also they look like the Hermitage Plaza skyscrapers in La Defense. Or rather, they look like these water towers.

Hans Poelzing - Water tower for Hamburg





I'm not even sure if it was actually built, but it's certainly a fascinating project in a evil kind of way (like everything built by Poelzig).

Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

The water tower in Sault Ste. Marie was built around 1967 for emergency use, and can be seen from far and wide. A resort hotel was built on the site and named "The Water Tower Inn". I think it's pretty unique for a water tower.

It's very 'northern ontario chic'

On this last photo you can see a door at the base. I always daydreamed about what the interior would look like...

Water Tower in Korolyov, Moscow Oblast


Korolyov, Moscow Oblast, Russia. The water tower in Kaliningradskaya Street.
...A tower of the standard design of 1960...1970s...
...It is not so spectacular in comparison with other towers posted in this thread, but I think this workhorse of water supply service deserved some our attention…
