This cache is dedicated to George Armistead, an Englishman who was mayor of Riga a century ago when the city was one of czaristRussia's fastest growing towns. George Armitstead was the mayor of Riga from 1901 – 1912. During this time water – line and sewerage system was built as well as construction of the railway management.
