I'm back from my fun-packed mini-vacation in Milwaukee. As usual, I had a great time visiting my family. The weather cooperated somewhat--except for two days dealing with the remnants of Hurricane Ike.
It'll take a day or so to write some posts and sort through photos, so here's a quickie to tide you over.
The Pryor Avenue Well is not technically a bubbler, but it is a fine example of public water distribution. Actually it is the only example, as it is the last public well in the city. This artesian well was built in the late 1800's. It is located on a regular city street in the Bay View area of Milwaukee.
The water has a distinctive iron taste and is super cold. I really like it. This is a pretty popular place and people are usually around filling up jugs. The house facing the well is for sale. I think it might be sort of fun to live there, but it could get old fast.
