Ice cream van and disused drinking fountain, Clifton Down
Ice cream van and disused drinking fountain, Clifton Down
Only the elaborate cast iron canopy of the fountain remains, it probably dates from the 1860s LinkExternal link . Manufactured by Walter Macfarlane & Co. of Glasgow, this popular design was installed in many British towns and cities, for which the inscriptions would be customised (there are several examples on Geograph e.g. LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link ). The fountains were also exported to the colonies - an interesting report from Australia, here LinkExternal link .
The drinking fountain is a Grade II listed structure. It may have been moved across the road, as the location does not quite tally with the description given by English Heritage LinkExternal link .
