This mill had eight sails, with bowsprit.

This mill was the only known standing brick tower mill. In a 1909 photograph it stood on a steeply sloping site with a stone base below ground level and a small "pend" in it. The tower with a steep batter could hardly have had more than two floors. It had eight straight-sided tapering sails braced to a bowsprit and the usual Uusimaa cap, but the tailpole does not show.
