I remember it well at its 15th and Walton Way intersection while seated in the backseat as my parents drove by it.
Scott, thanks so much for this information…I had wondered for yrs what happened to the Fountain and so happy to know it was not destroyed; also, it is great to learn about the interesting history. I lived on 900 block of 15th until the City bought all the property as Urban Renewal (the VA Hosp. is built on the property where my home was) and I would go from home to the water fountain, drink some water, visit the Firemen at the #5 Fire Station and then to Allen Park to see Ms Sullivan, the Parks Director, and play with all the neighborhood kids. Those were wonderful days.
I always enjoy your column Something you might not have known…thank you.
GREAT AND INFORMATIVE WRITING…I learned things I did not know about the man behind the fountain Mr Ensign.
