Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: The water tower

This photograph shows the former water tower on King Street, which was located beside Jack Greene’s Livery Stable. At the bottom of the picture, you can see the former railway line that ran down King Street. Today you would recognize the building on the right as the Grill on King and Simpson's Apothecary is now located where the tower stood. The water tower’s height was double this size. This image was taken to document the damage caused by Hurricane Hazel in the fall of 1954. This Atlantic hurricane came as a surprise to many and caused significant damage in the community.
