Senior Center Tankhouse
 This image is used in the gallery San Mateo County.Next Image ->>


The water tank was overflowing on the day of this drawing in 1977. The tankhouse is located near the Senior Center in Redwood City, California. The older woman resident, wearing a flowered dress, talked to me as I drew, telling me of the wonderful times she had years ago when her family lived there. Her eyes filled with tears as she relived those memories. A small sleeping room was located at the top of the tankhouse stairway. The building was demolished in 1995. The San Francisco 49er Pro Football team leased a building and a football field two-hundred yards away from where I sat to sketch and a couple of them stopped by to see what I was drawing.
