Andersonville won't be the same

It may very well be the most beloved water tower in the city - certainly, the only one to bear such national pride.  But like so many things in Chicago this winter, the Andersonville water tower that sat atop the Swedish American Museum suffered ice damage that threatened its structural integrity.  Hopefully, it can be restored and replaced so that immigrants will once again know where to find lamp shops, antiques, and brunch.
