We didn't go every month, maybe every other. Seemed like the whole town was a flea market. I don't remember buying much, but loved digging through all the 'stuff'. I remember there was a man who carved with a chain saw. He was one talented guy.
There's something about water towers.
A. Beautiful old water barel, shame about the wires.
Morning Tex oh I love that old water tower, the new ones around here do not have that character. Hug B
You just reminded me that I don't see them much any more, when they were everywhere, it seemed, when I was a kid. :-)
Those water towers are a hoot. I love reading them and looking at the art painted on them. I've never been to Canton...yet.
I do love a good old water tower, myself! This one reminds me of the one in my hometown in Ohio.
We don't have anything like that over here so we don't understand why they are so high up. Off to Google it and learn something new. Have a marvellous Monday.Best wishes Molly
Great tower, could give you a shower, lol.
It stands out nicely against that sky!
I love water towers and lighthouses...since we have NO WATER MUCH in West Texas, I see only water towers....:)
hij is wel heel mooi.
There are still several towns near me with water towers, I guess I will just have to take my new camera to town more often. The one I really like is in Kingsburg, CA, look it up on the internet, shaped like a giant coffee pot.
My daughter has one of these Towers in her town.
We see those in our travels sometimes. So cool.
Nice to see a water tower like that. Is it a functional one???
Water towers are a signature of small towns. When we go to Ritzville on the freeway the first thing we see is their big BLUE water tower. You got some good shots. MB
Neat old water tower. The one in our community was replaced with a structure that houses the fire department on its lower level.
Beautiful water tower.Greetings Irma
It does take you to a more peaceful setting. Blessings, Catherine
I love water towers. This type is so American and small-towny. :)
Like old barns and rusty things I love water towers... So much character in them. Happy Monday T
I like the charm of the tower, too. They don't make them like that anymore. We have a Trade Lot in town. Every first Saturday, it's quite busy.
Yes, windmills and water towers. Objects of beauty.
There is definitely something very retro about water towers. Like they're leftover relics from past generations.
A fine shot of this town's water tower. In the old days pilots used these tower names and names of towns painted on top of roofs to be sure of where they were.
It looks small compared to modern ones.
Water tower has its own charm! I always try to look for them when on the road.
Very charming!Good Morning Tex!
There was one just like this in the little west Texas town where I grew up!! Did bring some memories!!
distracted by that beautiful sky!!!pretty pictures!!
Love the old town charm look of a water tower! Memories of roadtrips come to mind of yesteryear to see grandparents! Great shots, Tex!
I Love when we are pulling through a city and see an Old water tower. It just says HOME for some reason.. Great shots my friend.Happy Monday to you. Hugs~
Canton needs to take some pride in their water tower which is really cool with its vintage look as you say. I saw some town water towers that looked as if they got up there and polished them after the paint job. Hmmm...could be a good meme. No, don't say it!
This makes me remember a water tower from the Sunday-Drive days of my youth (Quebec farmland). None around here but I'll be on the lookout.
Old water towers always make me think of that coming of age movie from the 90s, The War. It had an intense water tower scene. I loved that film!
There was a time when here in Portland I saw many water towers like the one in your pictures, but like so many things they seem to be disappearing.
Enjoyed the photos. When we were on our road trip across country, we got to also enjoy every water tower we passed by. Some had great artwork on the side, and you always knew the town you were passing or what team they were rooting for :)
I still want to climb a ladder all the way to the top of a water tower. I have always liked water towers too,
Love these photo's. :)
Water towers give such a feel of different times!
Lovely light blue skies - they make me feel so happy.
That's a beautiful water tower,Tex!!We don't have them here!Great shots!Dimi...
The view from those towers is pretty awesome, DAMHIK. I think there is great appeal in the vintage towers; the new one are ugly and lack character. I have to show this to my son, he's learning to drive and constantly complains when he practices parallel parking. The sign below the tower gives no other option :-)
Great shot! We have it's look alike here in Yukon, Ok. I climbed to the top of ours in 1962. Sure seemed like a long ways up!
Yep, water towers and windmills. Two of my favorite things. Very nice. Thanks for the reminder to link up with Rubbish by Roan today. I have actual rubbish tomorrow that I'll link up too. :-)
I lived by a water tower when I was a kid. They are pretty amazing in structure and purpose.When I get homesick, I sign in to Flickr so I can look at my homeland a little bit at a time.I hope you are having a good day, TexWis!
I have water tower right by my neighborhood. I don't think its rustic though, but I'll have to take a picture with super zoom to be sure!
Those old water towers are really neat. Love the sky in these shots. I went to First Monday once and it was a lot of fun.
Small town landmark, nice capture, TeXAloha
I guess the famousness didn't make it all the way up here. :-P
Neat tower! I think we drove through Canton on our way back from Nashville last summer. I don't remember the water tower, though.I thought of you the other day when I was at the SA Botanical Gardens with my mom. There was one, lone whistling duck at the pond. I told my mom about your fun, wonderful pictures! Which reminds me, I need to send her a link to your blog!
I love old water towers. I surprises me how many are left.
They add charm to an area.
We have some old water towers on the drive we make up to the north of the state sometimes. They serve as fabulous mile markers.
is that tank for storage or to keep a head of pressure in the system ?peter
It does have a nice vintage feel. :-)
A beautiful water tower! Is it subject to graffiti by high school seniors?
It takes me back in time...where I really would like to live!!Lindahttp://firstname.lastname@example.org
T, great tower! I bet the water was awful!Sorry, I haven't been around for a bit. Have been a bit under the weather! Better now! I think!
Makes me wanna watch reruns of F-Troop LOLPeace :)
I love it! It's rare to see ones like that any more.
Those old water towers are pretty cool!
Lovely shots of the tower, we don't see too many old water towers over this neck of the woods any more.
Neat! We visited a town on Virginia Eastern Shore recently; the water tower is painted like a lighthouse - very creative!
My daughter has been to the trade days a couple of times but I haven't. All the towns around here have a water tower. Guess the best one is Poteet's shaped and decorated like a strawberry.
Used to there often, but it got too big and crowded. They do have some neat and different things to sale tho.
Great captures! Love those white fluffy clouds.
Hmm, looks old. Is it still functional ?
Very nice - very american.
Aaah yes, the Vintage Markets of Canton. who can resist!
It's a beauty!! ...
Afternoon, love the water tower, so neat, thanksFrancine.
Old buildings, fences, barns, or water towers, they have had such a special use in so many people's everyday lives, who knows how many families lined up for water, or was it for fire engines, or the steam trains? Lovely view. Cheers, Jean.
It's sad that there are not many left like that.
The only water tower around here was dismantled years ago, that was a pretty big project! The shape of yours reminds me of Petticoat Junction:@)
Yes, excellent pictures. I like that tower!
I like this one! Lots of places have water towers, but most of them aren't that interesting.
I have only seen these in the cowboy flicks the Pres watches!!!,...:)JP
I love this old water tower...I guess we should try to photograph every one we see...won't be long till there are none left.
That is an oldie. It looks great!
cool water tower, doesn't it make you want to climb it!! :)
Interesting to see all the cell thingies on the tower!
An iconic image of years gone by.
great water tower...I wish Canton was like it used to be...I enjoyed the more junkier part...
Nice. You don't see many of these anymore. For some reason it reminded me of Petticoat Junction. grin.
Nice find! Not too many of these types around anymore... Love the graffiti that seems to grow on water reservoirs, a whole other subject for pictures.
That is great! I love that my town has an old-fashioned water tank like that.
Great looking tower.
That is an oldie, but goodie! Love those fluffy clouds!
Water towers are another great subject to photograph. I snap a lot of them on our travels, though most end up pretty blurry! There are definitely some unique ones out there. :)~Lindy
Yes it does look like something out of the past. Beautiful blue Texas sky too!
Nice water tower!
Nice building - it will be a shame when all these aspects of older landscapes fade away.I rather like the chicken as well!Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
I like the vintage charm of that water tower, too. And I love the sky and the clouds in the background! :)
Dearest Theresa,That is quite a different shape of water tower! They ought to give it a new lick of paint.Funny how cities double in various states, Georgia too has a Canton.Hugs,Mariette
Great choice for the "old" theme.
It is interesting what some towns do with their water towers, to commemorate an occasion or event. This is history.
I love them too...seems they are few and far between any more.. Great photo!Gert
I love when I come across water towers like that. Something about them feels like home......the good old days!
I was just thinking about water towers the other day and how they are like these tall stick men who kind of watch over each city or section of a city to keep it healthy and functioning. They get old, too. ;)
Awww, that's not rubbish! I quite like it and imagine I'd take a load of photos of it!
Blue and green ... I love these contrasts!!
Very nice to look at the other side of the world to see such an old water tower :-)
I'm guessing it's no longer used as a water storage. We have a couple here in town but I believe some are still in use. They are pretty cool looking.
Evokes images of growing up in a small town.What I like to call: "Home".
Everything that we consider old has such wonderful character. Great tower.
I like it too! Minnesota has some really fascinating ones around too!
I followed the link and wow! I guess if it count be found there, it can't be found. I wonder how many water towers around the country are now used as cell towers like this one? Nice photos!
That is a cool water tower.
Have you ever climbed up a water tower? Looks like fun! Liked the vintage . . .
