Highland Park Observatory Water Tower - St. Paul, MN - Postcard, c. 1920s


(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique Miller Art Co. postcard from the 1920s. It shows a view of the Highland Park Observation and Water Tower in St. Paul, Minnesota. 

"HIGHLAND PARK OBSERVATORY - The Highland Park Water Tower and Observatory stands at an elevation of 1097 ft. above sea level. The height of the cut stone and brick structure built in 1927 and 1928 to supply water to the Highlands Park district directly adjacent is 117 feet. The tower is forty feet in diameter and houses a steel water tank with a capacity of 200,000 gallons. A Spiral staircase surrounds this reaching to the observatory floor which commands a view of the entire panorama of the Twin Cities and a view of the five surrounding counties.", reads the description printed on the back. 

The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, light wear at the edges, blunted corner tips.
