Jubilee Drinking Fountain, Gourock
Jubilee Drinking Fountain, Gourock
The fountain (1897) is one of many that have the same basic design, differing only in a few details; they are the work of Walter Macfarlane & Co., of the well-known Saracen Foundry, at Possilpark, Glasgow.

In this one, the original font has been replaced by a later "Puro" model: NS2377 : Base of Jubilee Drinking Fountain; compare NS3975 : Drinking fountain, Levengrove Park, which has more details about "Puro".

See LinkExternal link (Memorial Drinking Fountains at WordPress) for a detailed description.
