Coaling towers

Don Ball Jr., Portrait of the Rails, Galahad Books, 1972
I missed the age of steam but remember these iconic structures as I was growing up and travelling around Ontario and Canada. They must all be gone by now? This one, with octagonal water tower, was located at Portage de Prairie, Manitoba. The CN locomotive is a U-1f 4-8-2.
