This drawing depicts the Caretaker's House at the Sigsbee Reservoir on busy West 26th Street in Erie, PA. The building, though vacant, has been well maintained by Erie Water Works. For many years it was occupied by the reservoir's caretaker and his family. The unusual design has undoubtedly stirred speculation as to what life must have been like in such a storybook structure. Its picturesque charm creates a nostalgic vignette from Erie's history.
