Second Floor

The roof of the second floor was much lower, now comprised of thick, steel joists supporting a concrete floor. Whatever was above us now required much more substantial flooring and support, suggesting wed now started to reach the level of the first water tanks.

There was a large door fitted to the dumb waiter suggesting larger objects were hauled up to this level of the tower.

The only other feature was a small doorway which led to the western side of the water tower.
