The Dublin High School Water Tank - A Right of Passage


During the 1950s and the 1960s, it became 
a right of passage for the young men of Dublin High School
to climb the water tower on the campus.

The goal was to go up and down without being caught.

Those who were victorious left the evidence of their triumph
by painting "The Phantom Strikes" on the side of the tower.

Scott, I'm not talking, but I would love to know where you got that picture. I've got a"friend" that would like a copy....That picture is over 60 years old.
