Surviving Victorian water towers of America

America's few remaining Victorian-era standpipe towers provide a fascinating look back at 19'th century architectural styles. To my knowledge, these wonderful ornate structures are found in the following locations in the U.S.:

Chicago- Pullman Water Tower
Chicago- Chicago Water Tower
Cincinnati- Eden Park Water Tower
Detroit- Water Works Park Standpipe
Milwaukee- North Point Water Tower
St Louis- Grand Avenue Water Tower
St Louis- Compton Hill Water Tower
St Louis- Bissel Street Water Tower

For a look at the St Louis towers, go to: http://www.builtstlouis.net/watertow...ertowers1.html

If anyone has photos of the other towers, please post them! And if I've overlooked any, by all means speak up.
Reminder: This thread pertains to the standpipe-style water towers of America built in the 1800's, not those of other styles or from other eras.
