A Leaning Tower


The Britten Water Tower 
Leaning at a 10 degree angle, it sits near a truck stop
on Route 66, at I 40, exit 114, in Groom, Texas.
I took this picture when trucking with Bill.
You can read the interesting history of
this unique water tower at Weird U.S. .

  2. A very interesting story about that leaning water tower and a very smart business man.
    Too bad the business burnt down.
