Also visible is the West Tampa water tank when it was painted checkerboard red and white.

Finally! A very rare shot showing the 20th Century. Photos of this drive-in are practically non-existent. This really brings back the memories. How well I remember the checkerboard water tank which is still standing today. Thanks Dan(Tampapix)!
