Description: 

The tower, called a "tank" in the text (66), is the scene of one of Young Bayard's early acts of reckless daring. Because he swings on a rope into a swimming pool over freight cars and piles of lumber, it can be assumed the tower is near the railroad tracks. But beyond that we have to guess at its location.
