A century-old reservoir

.

I discovered this beautiful mysterious old structure at the top of a hill near Bondi Junction, Australia.


Now that I'm back home in Israel I have time to research what it was that I saw.
Turns out that this is Waverley Reservoir (Elevated) (WS 136) and its story is here.

The water supply reservoir was built a century ago, completed in 1917.
I hope the heritage people will take good care of it.

It's got the look of a fortress!

A creative design for a reservoir. Interesting one.

An impressive building!

Rather lovely architecture for a structure that is as ordinary and as purely functional as a water supply reservoir. I too hope it will be well preserved.
