I've written to the Drinking Fountain Association kindly posted by Lang
Rabbie, hopefully, they may have some information.
Thanks for your post Vonnie, it really was rather splendid wasn't it!!
Hope we don't find its been demolished, that would have been absolute vandalism. Why on earth would they even resite such a magnificent structure is beyond me since the gardens are still there.
I know that the gardens were and probably remain a meeting ground for tramps and vagrants but taking away the drinking fountain seems a rather drastic and inhumane way of dealing with the problem. If they were that desperate, they could easy have turned off the water supply.
Infuriating that so many icons from SE1 have been relocated or have disappeared entirely, whilst those in more salubrious areas a respected. Really p's me off.
