S&WB Water Towers
Comments: One idea would be to place two (or more if necessary) brick looking smoke stacks next to the S&WB building, with the water stored in a long cylindrical tank at the top, contained within the smoke stacks, matching the building.

Another idea is to construct vintage looking water towers, an enormous one in Brooklyn, NY, comes to mind, and paint the S&WB logo on the side.

A third idea is to replicate the old "shot towers" that existed in New Orleans, beginning in the 19th century. One was an octagonal brick tower that was over 200 feet tall.
