Bonnie’s prompt to share an image featuring architecture came just at the right time. This week we are cat-sitting for friends of ours who live in an old converted railway station in Germany. Originally their building had a water tower on top of it too, like the one in Settle, UK, which is currently undergoing restoration. We had never thought to wonder why there are so many huge iron beams on the bedroom ceiling but now it’s obvious when you think that the tank on the roof must have held thousands of gallons of water!
the red brick upper floor corresponds to the location of the original water tank
