TIMBERING OVER WATER TANKS

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.
Many thanks
JM

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!
