I was late with the water tower posting and I have reposted as I think this was an important water tower and a very big story....Read the book about how Henry Ford tried to conquer the Jungle and failed, Though when you do see what he achieved it makes you wonder did he really start the distruction of the Rain Forest that we see in such a vast scale today?

The shape is very similar to what they call a monitor.

Was this in South America and about rubber producing trees?
