I lived on W 2nd Av and 14th St. Rode my bike to this location which, at that time early 50's, was the Water Works (completed). Was before it was all fenced in so, we were able to walk about freely between the water stored in the ground like swimming pools. We used to ride our bikes up and down the grassy mound. Ah, what innocence!

I was raised on the short one block section of W. 10th Street between (Red Road) W. 4th Ave & W. 3rd Ave. There was a large area for the Water Plant on W. 9th Street, North for a few blocks X a block or two wide. I remember when they built a huge mounded area at the end of our street. We use to ride down the grassed slope on big pieces of cardboard from appliance boxes we gleaned from the construction trash of the many apartment buildings that were going up at that time. On nice weekend afternoons, several people would fly kites on the top because it was flat on the top. Later I noticed that the city had fenced it all off. Our house/yard succumbed to the bulldozer in 1970 to make way for three apartment buildings. From Red Road, the apartment buildings now there are the sixth, seventh and eighth buildings on the north side of W. 10th Street.

I can't remember but I'm going to take a drive by there and look to see what's there. It seems to me that the waterworks extended north of 9th Street way back when, in addition to what most people see on Okeechobee. If it was part of the waterworks it should still be there; if not it's probably gone. There are more pics of the Movie Studios coming including an interior shot. Don

Don - Help me out here! Is this on the property of what later (in the 1960's) became part of the water works property? This type of building looks familar to me.
