What could be in the interior of this fairy hole?

This was taken from the inside of the infusion unit where I receive my gamma globulin treatments every there weeks. I noticed that some steam was coming out of the pipe on the roof across the street.

I found the sunlight hitting the raw 2x4s inside the black iron gate to be stunning.

Why It’s a Thingamajig, of Course!

Now does this shot below give you any ideas? Hint: look at the copper part. What do you know about copper and brass and buildings?

Hint # 2: look at the copper pipe going into the wall of the building. What goes into a building only in copper pipes? Further hint: it used be delivered into buildings via lead pipes. Until we realized that that delivery system could cause neurological damage.

Still a thingamajig? This set of copper pipes with a brass mechanism delivers water. This whole section of dirt next to the driveway of a 100 year old apartment building spent the entire weekend dug up right through the sidewalk and into the street. At night there would be boards over the trench. By this morning? Voilá! Shiny new copper pipes with a brass regulator. I’m quite sure the residents of the building are glad that they have a new, useful, thingamajig delivering water.

An Old Fashioned Water Tank

This is a water tank is in an old industrial section of Berkley, California. This area still has the railroad tracks that used to deliver the raw materials to places like the iron works building and the sheet metal factory. Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge of  two weeks ago inspired me to Point My Camera Upwards.
