Andersonville reunited with its Swedish flag-adorned water tower

More than three years after a harsh winter claimed Andersonville’s water tower, a replica has been installed

As downtown Chicago celebrated the Picasso’s 50th birthday yesterday in the Loop, the Andersonville pocket community on the Far North Side had its own big celebration. Three years after its well known and beloved water tank adorned with the blue and yellow Nordic Cross of the Swedish Flag was removed, a replacement tank was finally hoisted over the neighborhood yesterday. DNAinfo reporter Linze Rice was on hand for the event and shared numerous clips on Twitter of the new water tank being installed on top of the Swedish American Museum in Andersonville.

Here’s a quick look at the replica water tank being carried into Andersonville and taking its rightful place over the neighborhood.
