Description 

The tower is traditionally composed with built-up support beams (which include attractive v-lacing) and pin-connected support bracing connections with the bracing rods having loop-forged eyebars. The main supports are traditional built-up beams configured as back-to-back channels with v-lacing on each side.

The tower is an excellent example of a tower built by Pittsburgh - Des Moines Steel Company.
