Re: Water Towers
Not necessary so. During the Turn of the Century, prior to 1910, standardization was almost non-existent. Railroads did with what they had. Yeah, certain proven patterns like trestle bents and bridges may have shared characteristics because of proven reliability, but it wasn't until right before WW1 that standards started to take shape. One thing is certain, you can see certain things consistent with each other. I too thank Oldguy for posting that.
