Water Towers - Hot, Cold, and Woody Guthrie.

Hot, Cold and "Home of Woody Guthrie" Water Towers

Field review by the editors.

Okemah, Oklahoma

We've seen the old "Hot" and "Cold" water tower gag before, but Okemah's line of three municipal storage tanks offered a unique combo of labels.

And whoever ran the water company in Okemah when the last water tower went up must have had a sense of humor, if not more liberal politics than the rest of the town.

"Home of Woody Guthrie" was painted on Okemah's new onion-shaped water tower in 1972, back when most of Okemah still wanted nothing to do with its left-wing home town celebrity, and when most other towns were painting their water towers with smiley faces.
