Exploring Photos with Jim Smith: The Old Water Tower

From the late 1890s to 1955, our town’s water tower was located on King Street, where Simpson’s Apothecary is today. The old water tower can be seen in the photograph taken from the Niagara Lawn bowling club. The bowling grounds are now the new Voices of Freedom memorial garden commemorating blacks who came to Niagara and freedom by way of the Underground Railway.
