Photography of St. Louis Waterworks Standpipes
Standpipes were common elements of historic city waterworks, providing a vertical column to stabilize water pressure surges. It was common for these utilitarian standpipes to be 'hidden' within ornamental structures to provide visual appeal to an otherwise plain giant pipe towering over neighborhoods. Only seven of these structures remain in the United States - and St. Louis has the distinction of preserving three of them, the most of any city in the country today. - Dan
