Over the Moon: Austin's Moonlight Towers-- Part 2

A map accompanies the article showing the locations of the remaining towers.  One is in Zilker Metropolitan Parn, two south of the river and most of the rest around downtown Austin and East Austin.

$2.50:  was the daily salary of Austin's first "tower trimmer" in the years after the tower was built.  The trimmer would ascend all 31 original towers each day to maintain and replace the arc light lamps' carbon rods.
