I've always thought the "Fingernail" structure at Howard Amon park is quite interesting and odd at the same time. Why would someone design a concrete structure in the shape of a fingernail?

Andrew and I think the structure was made to show off some new concrete technology from back in the day as well as to protect ACME Concrete's work place from wind and dust. Anyone else have information on the history of this very unique structure?
