The Bovina Reservoir

Did you know that Bovina has a reservoir?  It supplies the water for the Bovina Center hamlet.  The Bovina Centre Water Company was established in 1913, with construction of the reservoir taking place a year later.  The water company was taken over by the town in 1983.

On July 1, I took a hike to the reservoir and took this picture.

Compare this with a picture taken probably in the late 1930s or early 1940s by James Hoy.  Thanks to Jim and Tom Hoy for sharing their dad's photograph.

I need to take another picture to match the time period of the Hoy photograph, probably late fall or early spring.  I'll share that picture when I get it.
