Wash day for Temperance Fountain



The Hope side needs some attention. (And read about the history of the fountain here.)

We dated briefly. She thought I drank too much. What a drag.

Oh, and it's going to be hot today. (No charge for that one.)

Were recently graduated sorority girls complaining about this too?!?

I once watched in rapt horror as a shirtless old man washed his sore festooned torso in that fountain. After he departed, a group of kids arrived and innocently imbibed from that very same spring. Perhaps someone should have something but it was all too delicious imagining the panoply of pathologies their tender little mucous membranes came into contact with that day. God. So many fond memories of this fountain.

Anon 4:49 pm. I have fond memories of that fountain too esp. the design element at the bottom which used to be for the doggies to get a drink as well as the birdies. When was the fountain renovated, working for a time before going dry again?
