Photo of the Week: Tower No More

It was a sad week in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood as our iconic water tower (painted like the Swedish flag) was taken down from its building on Clark Street. The water tower-- which dates from 1927 and is often featured on posters and t-shirts depicting the neighborhood-- was damaged in the winter when the heating system broke down, causing the water inside to freeze and expand. This DNAinfo Chicago article offers more information. It's currently sitting in a parking lot across the street and hopefully will be repaired or replaced.
