Massey Water Tank

I'm a new member and I live in Union Grove, Wi which is about 15 miles west of Racine. I work about a mile from the old Massey site every day. I have a picture of the Massey Water tank that (according to my camera) was taken on 8/15/2007. I took the picture because as I was driving by I noticed a bunch of equipment around the tank area. Two days later the tank was down in preparation for a new Industrial Park that nothing has ever happened in.
I'll try to post the picture here, if it doesn't work, somebody please let me know how to go about it.

RE:Massey Water Tank

Thank you so much Big R and welcome to the MCA site.

What a great picture and well done for documenting that part of Massey history in 2007 before it all came down, that is the tower John and I remember from September 1997, what a shame nothing has happened on the site and wouldn't it of been something special to have that tower in a M-F collection, I suppose like many other great pieces of iron history it ended up in China.

Please keep posting away with any J I Case, or Massey history from Wisconsin, as I knowe there is so much history there, I remember in 1992 a local historian taking us for a guided tour of Racine she did a great job in showing us homes, offices and into the factories of Case.

I remember The County Fairgrounds in Union Grove well where the 150th M-H Anniversary show was held in Sept 1997, for me one of the best Massey Featured Shows to date.

Many thanks Big R you have made my Saturday morning, looks like it is going to be a great day.

RE:Massey Water Tank

Good friend Lyn Jones who is a regular watcher of this site has come up with the following site which has a good shot of the water tower.  He can't post it himself as he is not a member - an example of the need for non-members to be able to post for the benefit of us all.  I hope that this will be urgently considered at the next directors' meeting.
