This photograph depicts the city of Berkley in the 1930s from atop the old city water tower, which was located on Bacon Avenue, just south of 12 Mile Road, on the grounds of the Berkley Department of Public Works facility.
In the photo, homes, land and even Pattengill Elementary School, which was built in 1925, can be seen.
James Tong, with the Berkley Historical Museum, came across this photo while compiling it as part of “Images of America: Berkley,” which is available at the Berkley Public Library, Barnes & Noble and
