Build Your Own Chicago Water Tower Postcard
The Water Tower was designed by William W. Boyington in 1869 to house the 138-foot standpipe used to pressurize the city's water supply. Just two years later, the little tower miraculously survived the Great Chicago Fire, although an entire third of the city around it was destroyed. Since that time its preservation has come to symbolize the city's perseverance and ambition.
