Roving Rube

Jacob Wrey Mould Fountain, City Hall Park

What's New

We previously covered this fountain in our gilding series.

As part of its restoration, the gas lamps were re-lit. We find it odd to see gas lamps on during the day -- they smell funny and make things seem even hotter. It might be interesting to visit at night, though, and see what they makes things look like. And try to imagine the city before light bulbs.

This page requires a 6.0+ browser for the pictures/text to display correctly. If you have an older version of Netscape, Explorer, or AOL, the text will appear cut off and the pictures distorted.

Site Tips: If you have Explorer or AOL (recent version), and a mouse with a scroll wheel, you should be able to move the mouse anywhere over the text at right and scroll it with the wheel, so you can still see the picture while reading.

Most of the pages have a large version of the main picture which you can make your wallpaper by first clicking on it to download, then right-clicking and choosing "Set as Background".
