    So, this is the same sort of structure as was along I-44 in Shrewsbury, correct? And if I understand how they work, the concept was that the tank “floats” in a sense, moving up and down inside the steel frame depending on how full it is. Very cool.

      Yes, you can see a picture of the Forest Park gasometer while it was still in operation; the tank rose and fell depending on gas supply:
