If you were around before the late 1970’s you remember this wooden water tower right behind the Pharmacy where the Water District building now sits.
My friend Jack Talbott, who was one of the summer kid’s I hung out with back in the day was on the Island this year for the 4th of July week and brought his drone with him. One morning we took it Uptown to recreate photos that were taken of town from the water tower forty years ago in 1975.
Kinda funny because around 1973 Jack brought his friend Craig Kanagy with him up from California for the summer to work at K2. Craig brought a red white and blue flag design parasail with him and I remember flying in it at the Wax Orchard runway behind a van. Now more than 40 years later I’m uptown flying a drone with Jack and Craig has lived here ever since that summer in 1973.
