Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association
The Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association was founded in 1859 initially to provide clean drinking water in public places for people in London, but soon extended to include animals and also outside London itself. It is still active, with the objectives of:

The promotion of the provision of drinking water for people and animals in the United Kingdom and Overseas
The preservation of the Association's archive materials, artefacts, drinking fountains, cattle troughs and other installations.
