Memorial fountain, Bangor
Memorial fountain, Bangor
Ornamental drinking fountain located in the Sunken Gardens off Quay Street in Bangor, previously seen in this view taken in 2007 - J5081 : Ornamental fountain, Bangor (1). The fountain was erected in 1893 by Bangor Corinthians Sailing Club in memory of Mrs Arthur Hill Coates (see J5081 : Ornamental fountain, Bangor (2)). There is no foundry name obvious but it is believed to have been cast by Walter Macfarlane & Co's Saracen Foundry in Glasgow LinkExternal link . Some restoration work would be desirable - it looks sadly negelected compared to a similar structure in Coleraine C8432 : Ornamental drinking fountain, Anderson Park, Coleraine; the actual fountain has long since vanished.
