Water reservoir tank at the Detroit Zoological Park entrance. "This great tank holds a million and a half gallons of water. It is part of the $500,000 investment made by the City of Royal Oak as a nucleus for the great North Woodward water system. This system works with the Detroit water system, from whose vast plant it draws water." Caption to newspaper photo (left) of the tank titled, "PART OF GREAT WATER SYSTEM" (1930's?). The tank now holds no water. Color photo courtesy of D. G. Penney, December, 2001.
