Too bad Fargo just sold their water tower last year-I heard that Andy Leidner bought it, and hope that he did.

A few shots of Houston, Texas water tower flowing water a few weekends ago at the 2016 SPAAMFAA Winter Convention. Was being supplied by two 1920's vintage American LaFrances.

I have the 1972 version of the Hass/Jory chart, which exceeds the 500 KB limitation, and includes information on each of the rigs shown in this forum.  Glad to email a copy to anyone.
