Part of the old railroad water tower in Norfolk, St. Lawrence County.  This water tower was made in Cincinnati.  The water came into the base from a water tower on the hill behind; the main is still in place in the ground.  Photos and textual data by Scannerman.


Text added to the above explaining parts.

Charlie Barney writes "Thanks for the great explanation and pictures of the railway water tower. I must have passed by "my" tower 1,000 times - but never really thought about it. Marc put a number of my train-related photos of the old Delaware and Hudson complex in Rouses Point, NY on his site. If you put "roundhouse" in his search box, you will see them. We do have an intact water tower in Rouses Point, but I never thought to include it with the other photos. As of this moment, I don't think anyone has made an effort to maintain it. It looks rather rickety compared to yours."  The pics of the Rouses Point water tower are on this page.

Scannerman also sent this old photo, he writes "This shows a fireman filling the water tank on a coal train tender just before their trip; you can see a brim-full coal bunker behind him."

Scannerman writes "This is the counterweight used to balance the weight of the water, making it easier to move it when it was full. Water is 8.4 pounds per gallon!"

Village of Wiscoy, Town of Hume, northern Alleghany County (County Road 23 or possibly Hume Road), likely a very very old building.

A short historical entry on the village at this link.  CharlieB writes that it looks ready to fall.
It is located on a five-tier waterfall system on Cold Creek.

CharlieB writes that it was once was once a cabinet shop that used a paddlewheel for power and across the creek is a power plant owned by RG&E. When this cabinet shop was running and intact this cabinet shop was responsible for a great variety of articles, wood sap spiles, honey boxes, bee hives and sections, porch posts and spindles, chopping bowls, rolling pins, potato mashers, not to mention the potato crates that are used to fill the apple bins from the cider mill sometimes.

Close-ups of where the waterwheel must have been.  The building itself is very close the edge of the main road.

Joe G writes "That is property of my uncle Gene. Right across the street was his house which may not be there. I have a lot of childhood memories there. Emery Road was very special for me. First time to drive a car, tractor, go carts, and a three wheeler. I could tell a million stories but I will leave it at that." 
kodi delong writes "I have lived on the Emery rd for all of my life, my grand father used to go on the road to cut trees for the saw mill 'Dupreys saw mill' I have walked past those buildings so many times, and yes the house is still there, Carol is now living in it."

The pump house.  JohnMH wants to point out the hand pump (in the second photo above) and right behind the pump the ladder, which doesn't look too sturdy.  Also notice in the interior shot (the last photo) the ladder is made of pipe.
