Tower location.

A few years back I purchased from an estate sale of a local railfan appox 2000 slides.
Not being native to this area there are a lot of slides location that I can't ID.
This slide of JK tower is one of them.
It appears that the tower was in service at the time the slide was taken.

For some time I have been toying with the idea of converting my VHS tapes to digital and making Youtube videos. I have uploaded my second video in the From the VHS Archives series. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhebDg5L1as I know this is not Fort Wayne railfan info but thought you might enjoy it. RD
