Fire watch towers
I found these vintage images via a link from BLDGBLOG and think they're pretty interesting. They come from an archive of images collated by the US Forestry Service. The towers, once ubiquitous in forests around the US attracted all sorts of people looking for solitude, from hermits, to housewives, to students. Buildings whose sole purpose was for it's occupants to view landscape from!
