Water Tanks at Maxwell, NM

These water tanks at Maxwell, NM are something of a mystery. They are dead ringers for Santa Fe water tanks, but are located on a hillside a good half-mile west of the railroad right-of-way. The 1920 water tank record doesn't list any tanks at Maxwell.

These concrete tank foundations are at Springer, NM, just 13 miles south of Maxwell. One wonders if the tanks at Maxwell once occupied these foundations.
