Savannah Gas Tank Globe

BerylDrue
Tank in Savannah, Georgia painted to represent the earth. Savannah, Georgia - World Globe Gas Storage Tank. Big globe -- recently repainted for the new Millennium. It was originally used as a storage tank for the local gas company. In 1956, R.E.Turner, Jr. (Cable mogul Ted Turner's father) talked the company into painting it like a globe. The repaint is a little different -- it is now painted as the earth is seen from space. It even has a hurricane cloud formation heading straight towards Savannah. The original painting had Australia painted upside down, the repaint also has an upside down Australia. #earth #gas_tank #Georgia #Globe #landmark #Savannah
