Water palace

when you think about the developments that have made your life better, you have to include running water. right? so why not a palacio del aguas corrientes? why not indeed. the building is still a working building. people walk into the palace to pay their bills and complain about the service. only they sit under 50-foot stained glass windows to do it.

one little corner of the building is given over to a plumbing museum. i think this is the throne room (groan). seriously, have you ever seen so many toilets in one place? meanwhile, these water meters are so beautiful i want to start my own collection.

there are a few more pictures here.
