Drinking fountain, Christie Park
The long-disused fountain is located just within the southern entrance of the Christie Park in Alexandria. The figure's uplifted arm originally held an urn aloft.

The park was named after a local industrialist in the dyeing and textiles industry, John Hyde Christie (chairman of United Turkey Red Co Ltd.), who gifted the park to the district: see NS3880 : Christie Park: inscription on the lodge for the details.

For the date when the park was officially opened, see NS3880 : Main gates of Christie Park.
