Re: Photo: Loading Treated Water Pipe (1935)

Maybe TMI, but I found it interesting:

http://www.sewerhistory.org/photosgraphics/pipes-wood/

Two obvious possibilities:  1) creosoted pipe not intended for potable water, (2) creosote only applied to the outside.  If the the latter, it may have been more to protect the iron banding against corrosion.

And Bruce's photo is there, with a bit more info.
