Find Old Cistern. While excavating
for a trench, along the south side of
Sixth avenue, near Fifteenth street,
workmen found an old cistern half
filled witli water. It was brick walled
and about is bv 10 feet and S feet
deep. It is a relic of the old vohuiteer
fire depart num. used when the ciiy
waterworks had not been constructed.
Cisterns weie built ar various jioints
of the down town district and kept fill
ed with water pumped through th
few water mains which then existed
by the pumps of some of the factories.
First the old hand pump, and then
later the "steamer." discarded some
eight or ten years ago, was used to
pump water from these cisterns ami
throw a stream on burning buildings.
Fred Alsterlund. chief of the fire de
partment before his death a number of
years, was the only man who had a
record of the location of these cisterns.
It is believed that there were at one
time six. Most of them have been
filled, and the one just now discovered
will suffer the same fate.
