Wall and Water

You don’t see too many of these anymore. This is a water fountain, though I’m not sure that’s the right name for it, modeled after similar ones in Rome. In its better days, it likely had a spigot that you could turn on/off to fill containers. They weren’t really made to drinking straight from the source as with normal water fountains.

We’re seeing a resurgence in this basic design all over the place. National Parks have had bottle filling stations for years. They’re not nearly as fun as the old Roman designs, but they accomplish the same goal.
