4093A while back I did a blog posting on the Woodfield Water Tower.  Johnny Kunzer, one of the readers of the blog, found it and wanted to update it with this photo he took in August, 1985.

By this time, the tower was 14 years old, having been built in 1971 at the same time Woodfield was under construction.  This paint job, with its 1970s earth tone colors, was the first incarnation.  This was also ten years before it was completely renovated in 1995.

The photo clearly shows some wear and tear on the tower so it has to be considered that there was either an interim paint job or some patching work that was done.

Johnny also pointed out that the Schaumburg Corporate Center at Higgins and Meacham is also under construction in the background.

This photo is a great indication of the treasures people have.  Not only is it a great photo of the water tower, but the background also supplies us with details that we might not have.  Please keep the library in mind when you’re going through your old photos and documents.  I am always happy to incorporate them into the library’s archives or make use of them on this blog.  Sharing them with everyone can bring forth a lot of good memories and details that might otherwise not be recorded!

Thank you Johnny!
