Corinthian column in the world!  Built in 1871, the decorative top is made out of cast iron and copper.  

The Grand Avenue Water Tower is a water tower located at the intersection of Grand Avenue and 20th street in the College Hill neighborhood of St. LouisMissouri. It is the oldest extant water tower in St. Louis, pre-dating both the Bissell Street Water Towerand the Compton Hill Water Tower.[1]

Amazing Fact ~ Doorknob Trivia

Doorknobs are probably the most touched objects, especially the ones that are on the doors of a toilet at the mall. 
And yet, you don’t often get sick after touching public restroom knobs. That is because doorknobs are normally made of brass. Brass and a couple of other metals have an ability to clean themselves – in a given amount of time these metals are able to sterilize themselves! This is called the Oligodynamic effect
It has been tested and found that brass is able to sterilize itself in the span of eight hours. While some have tried to explain how it works, no one has been able to explain the effect in a satisfactory manner.
Other metals like silver, copper and copper alloys are able to kill bacteria better. Silver, purportedly is a very robust disinfectant. But, not many would be able to afford doorknobs made out of silver or pure copper. Instead, a far cheaper alloy consisting of copper and zinc (brass) is used to make bacteria zapping doorknobs.
