Gore Park Fountain

The original Gore Park Fountain was almost 100 years old when it was dismantled, shortly after this photograph was taken in 1959. After flirting with a fountain designed to look more like a flying saucer, a replica of the original fountain was later constructed on the site. That's King Street off to the right, and those stores under the Westinghouse sign are now long gone, demolished to make way for Jackson Square.
