The water tower looks far better than the metal circus tent that was there before. If they enclosed it in wood sheathing, it would look even better.
what about a pointed wooden top?
That occurred to me, too. But then, the Petticoat Junction water tower was also topless.
But then, the Petticoat Junction water tower also had a few cute girls swimming/bathing inside the tank and waving at you as you went by, too... As they pushed the bounds of TV decency of the 1960's just as far as they possibly could.
Somehow, I don't think Ivory Soap or suntan lotion would be a very good water treatment for the insides of a boiler, but they didn't worry about little details like that back then. In reality it probably has a flat or slight cone-shaped top to keep the critters out, you just can't see it from the ground.
