Other than puns and poetry (and confirmation that the fountain is now more flower-bed than water-feature), the main learning today was that this fountain was built by the Sun Foundry around 1880 - helping condense the likely date range quite a bit....

Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Possibly shortly after c.1880 (fountain built)
