Remember when

La Porte Mayor Emmet Hoyt Scott is seen standing in the foreground of La Porte Water Works. The man in the background near the door is unidentified, but may be George H. Storey, a superintendent for 18 years. The Water Works building was completed in 1870 by Dr. L. Rose and used the popular Holly Water Works system until 1896.
