|Eber's Water Towers: Norway|

A free translation to English:
A vane on a water tower that demonstrate a bodily exacting water collection, can perhaps be one moment to point out the advantage of the tower. When the architect/constructor of the tower is unknown, can it only be speculations of the reasons to that the vane on the tower on Buöy in Stavanger, Norway demonstrate how a boy, with a classic water pump, are pumping up water in a old woman’s bucket.
The water tower in reinforced concrete, that was built 1920 in connection with the establishing of an engineering workshop on the island, has a height of 23 meter, included the vane. The tower had a reservoir volume on 170 m³ and a highest water level on +48 meter, before it got out of operation 1955, the year when Buöy got water from the centre of Stavanger.
Three years after that the picture was taken, was the tower restored completely, both of historic reasons and because that the tower is a landmark in the town. The old iron vane was at that time even take down and compensated with a copy in more resistant material.
