The next photo is interesting in that it shows many buildings, some rather large, that are no longer in existence.
waite's Wheelwright Shop; 4- Ireland's Blacksmith Shop; and
5- YMCA. Can anyone identify the building between 1 & 2?
What happened to the fire bell?
I cannot provide you with an exact date, but the old tank came down sometime between 1980 and 1982. The borough completed its new tank in 1980 and aerial photos show it removed by 1982.

Paul was right on the money, as usual. I just recently came across a newspaper clipping from the Atlantic City Press that confirms that the old water tower was dismantled in October, 1980. A back corner of the Tuckerton Bank can be seen on the right.
Following is an aerial photo of the modern cylinder shaped water tower that was erected in October, 1980 on South Green Street. It is still in operation, today.
