Willie Weir writes to the beaconhill list:
I have periodically taken photos of the work on the reservoir in Jefferson Park. I’ve lived here long enough to remember the space surrounded by barbed wire. I know there are people on this list who still haven’t seen the view from this vantage point. On a clear day this winter, walk past the community and up toward the lawn bowling club. You won’t be disappointed!
Willie recommends that you choose the high-definition and full-screen options to view it in its full detail:
Thanks for the awesome photos and video, Willie!
