Thank you to Bob Henderson for providing
the sketch above, and for providing the following comments on two of the
water tanks in Edinburgh Old Town in the 1940s.
Water Tank at
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.
