Rath water tower

This week Flashback Friday is featuring the Rath water tower, a Waterloo landmark which came crashing to the ground on May 7, 1991. A bulldozer yanked on two cables attached to the severed sections of two legs. The portion of the tank with the Rath logo was purchased by a Waterloo man who planned to restore the trademark.
