Tower | Mansfield, WA | May 2020
I won’t attempt to bluff my way through identifying this structure or its purpose. The tower has a door and window for Mr. and Mrs. Farmer, electricity for lights and machinery, and height for … well, not sure what. Fuel depot? Pumping station? Fancy-schmancy outhouse? I skipped going inside because hornets had already nested. Otherwise, the building is yet another fine example of simple design in the middle of nowhere. It’s a stub of solidity with nary a curlicue, meaning smooth construction, easy maintenance and muscled sturdiness against harsh weather conditions. You can see I admire form following function, even when I don’t know what the heck that function is.
