The real counterpart of the water tower that is pictured on the left side is located next to the railway station in Köthen (Saxony-Anhalt, Germany). Today it's no longer in use. Due to the rise of the railway transit hub in Köthen about 100 years ago, it was decided to built a water tower, which took about one year to complete (from 1911 to 1912). The water tank has a capacity of 250 m³ (66,000 gallons), and the tower is about 30 m (100 feet) tall.

The tower on the right side is based on the water tower of Markranstädt, near Leipzig in Germany. It's a bit smaller than the real counterpart, but looks like a typical water tower in Germany, like they can be found everywhere in the country. And although they are relatively old, many of them are still used, even though some of them only serve as mobile communication tower these days.
