Risti watertower from the Tsar era

The Risti water tower from the Tsar era is part of the Risti railway station complex. The railway station with the railroad lines was built in 1904, the station building was completed a year later, the water tower was probably built in the same period.
The water tower was used to supply water to the steam locomotives. There was a water tank or a reservoir at the top of the tower and a water heater or a boiler on the lower floor. The boiler was used to prevent the water from freezing in the tank.
The tide-gauge and metal cockle-stairs have survived. The station building and pumping station, located near the water tower, can also still be seen.
