Photo Files - Norwich Water Towers

The Tidey St. Water Towers

Late Uncle Fred Catton had the above photo on the wall of his apartment in Tillsonburg when I visited a couple of years ago (flash bulb glare included). Uncle Verne Catton of Norwich has a large scale original, minus the glare, on the wall in his house to this day. Together with their mother Ida Belle, younger brother Arthur and sister Edith (my mother), they lived in the Tidey St. house below the tower. I imagine their water pressure was excellent! Note: At least three workers are visible on top tier of stabilizing struts.

This photo, taken by my father Doug Harrison, and showing both of Norwich's water towers, is undated.
