Eber's Water Towers: Latvia

by Eber Ohlsson

Cirkulation 3/2014

A free translation to English:

North of the Latvian city Liepaja built the Russian Tsarist Empire 1890-1906 a war-harbor, which is now called Karosta. It was an independent society with its own water supply, which in 1905 built a 37 meter high water tower in gothic style with its belonging steam engine driven pumps.

During the Soviet occupation of Latvia became Karosta a Soviet naval base, with at most 40 000 inhabitants, but prohibited for all civilians. Nowadays, visitors can see the difference between the Tsarist empire relatively well preserved red brick buildings and the miserable quality of the Soviet concrete buildings.
