Laundry water tower and chimney. c1900. Brick with lead
pyramidal roof. Square plan.
A battered tower has a plain crow-stepped gable to the

with gabled half dormers, to the sloping roof, to a central
octagonal truncated chimney. Segmental-arched ground-floor
openings, with a central doorway and flanking windows with
metal frames, and an oculus above.
HISTORY: a notable unified water tower and boiler chimney, and
