You never know who’s looking

I took this photo at Hawthorne Leslie’s Yard back in 2003. The fountain was stolen in 2005. Yesterday I received an email from a chap in Costa Rica who is writing an article about cast-iron fountains (don’t ask). However he did say that “that in my country we have a replica of the same model Fontana, acquired in England in 1868 and melted by Coalbrookdale and Co.” As Michael Caine might have said – “Not many people know that”
