Does anyone know where this was in Furtherwick Road?

The only place in Furtherwick road that I can think of with that much vegitation was Furtherwich Farm but I have no recollection of a stand pipe nearby. Mind you in 1925 I would only have been two & according to my mother water was laid on to the farm just after I was born. is that a ghostly form near what seems to be a building.

I am not sure whether this might be relevant but when I lived at #1 Marine Approach (1951-53) which was situated at the corner of Furtherwick and Marine Approach,I could look down from upstairs at a concrete enclosed type of pumping station. Perhaps that was a modern part of the Water system that would have replaced the earlier "fountain"?? Gerald Hudson.

With regard to Gerald Hudsons comments, the pumping station adjacent to No 1 Marine approach where my grandparents & I lived during ww2 was a sewage installation and,I believe,still is.
