Views of Waterbury


Views of the city of Waterbury from atop the tower of the Waterbury Republican building. The 245-foot tower (bottom of the page) was added late in the design phase to satisfy the demands of a railroad executive who had visited Sienna, Italy and wanted to copy the Torre del Mangia.

The Rep-Am building was originally Waterbury's Union Station, designed by the well-known New York architectural firm of McKim, Mead, and White, the same firm that designed the Great Hall at Ellis Island.
