I like to categorize these fixtures in the Alex Wilson Community Garden as vernacular architecture.

A visitor to the community garden can look up and see against the wall of the building adjacent to the garden a pipe.

Following the pipe down its curve leads to stacked tubs.

An ingeniously simple system to capture runoff for watering the garden.

I particularly like the stacking of the tubs and can imagine the overflow from the top one filling the bottom two.

There is a piece of urban legend associated with the AWCG water system reported by Gayla Trail: "Apparently when the system was first constructed, and before it had a protective mesh top, a friend of a friend arrived at his plot one day to find a nude man emersed in the “tub” taking a bath!"

And so for day 1378
