Water Tank at Arthur Street

"There was a water tank at the top of Arthur Street but it was much smaller than the one at the church.

 The Arthur Street tank was a metal tank made from steel panels. it was about 16 feet square and four feet deep with a wire mesh cover to stop us from climbing into it.
