Late 1870s – early 1880s. Photo.
A water supply system was not constructed in Gatchina till the late 19th century. Residents of private houses used wells in their yards while other people used water delivered in barrels by water carriers. The Silver and White lakes in the Palace Park were believed to be the cleanest, so they were used to supply the town with drinking water.
