Steel Tower I Bad Shape
While dismantling the 150-foot rlectrto
light tower at the corner of Broadway nd
Eighth street an alarming condition waa
discovered. Parts of the tower were In
such a rusted and weakened condition that
Its collapse, as had been the case about
nine years ago. waa Imminent. Some of
l the steel tubing, of which the tower is
constructed, waa found to be so rusted thet
It was barely a sixteenth of an Inch In
thickness. When the tower at Broadway
and First street collapsed about two year
ago a - similar condition waa found. - In
view of the extreme danger, the city coun
cil at that time ordered the tower at
Broadway and Fourth street taken down
and this was' done, but the others were
permitted to stand.
City Electrician Bradley will now make
a report to the city council recommending
the dismantling of the remaining six
towers on East Pierce at rent, Oakland ave
