Water Tank

There is a wooded property that I know of, It started out as a stable in the 1930s. Later in the late 1960s early 70s the property became an archery range for a local archery club complete with a club house. From what I have been told the archery club was forced out by the city because of complaints of stray arrows landing in a nearby parking lot in the mid 1980s. The clubhouse burn to the ground and the property was reclaimed by nature leaving behind the 1930s water tank, a slab and fireplace and an old metal shed to be reclaimed by nature and mostly forgotten.

The remains if a path and steps coming up from the bayou



The slab and fireplace of the club house



The bayou

The water tank as I approached it





It is a riveted iron tank, sitting on wood beams supported on brick supports.







The last time this location was mentioned in the public was in a 1988 Houston post article.

You can make pictures part of a post by hosting them externally, and then linking to them with

[ img] URL [ /img]

it makes it look a lot cleaner.
Just remove the spaces and replace "URL" with the URL.

Much better
We like sploring pics and true stories.

Change "pic" to "inp" in the image prefix address to display the full image rather than a thumb nail.

Thank you for the tip I will try that next time, I had to figure out how to turn a 9 MB photo into a 100 or less KB "thumbnail". I have to create a new folder just for my UER resized photos so I can post them, I guess I am not in flicker anymore.

You are welcome.
Without a outside account staying under the 100kb and preserving the image q can be tricky.
Intricate and complex images suffer the most.
However less complex ones come out quit well.

In Texas you can still find steam RR water tanks and presumably coal bunkers.
Abandoned and active lines are interesting to walk, a lot of history and industry are near them including relic camps used by rail construction gangs.
