Victoria Fountain – c. 1900

From the Detroit Publishing Co. archives at the Library of Congress Website, comes this shot of the Victoria Fountain, now in Willistead park, in its original location on Devonshire Road, just south of the Train Station.

A neat detail shot of the original top of the fountain.

A look inside, shows the fountain in operation, along with the sharp new inscription on the bottom.

The fountain today, shows the original top long gone.

The inscription is still there today. However a little less crisp than it was in the old photo.

Have a good weekend, I’ll see you back here Monday.
