Can anyone help with photographic evidence of what timbering over the top of a water tank on a coal hole (or tank) may have looked like.
Perhaps easier than representing the water which may inevitably show the dust.

This is a "me too" post!
I have been looking for years for a good photograph of a typical example.
There is a distant aerial of the Bletchley coal hole on the net at
showing it in 1938.
The L&Y had similar coal holes so might also be worth a look.
It is sometime since I had another go.
I'd like to know what you might find!

If you check Britain from Above there are some really good oblique aerial photo's of the coal hole at Loughborough Derby Road Station showing the timber cover over the water tank.
