Brewer Fountain Under Repair



The Brewer fountain in the Common has just been dismantled for repair and renovations. It was last renovated about 30 years ago. I have shown it in parts several times, you can see it here, here, and here. This is a photo of the whole fountain. It has the mythological figures of Poseidon, Amphitrite, Galatea, and Acis at the base.

This is interesting. If you didn't post this, I would never have thought fountains could be dismantled for cleaning. I always thought they were just cleaned similarly to swimming pools.

Your photos of the fountain are excellent and it is really beautiful.
I hope it will be soon back as great as before. Or better.

The whole place needs a little cleaning: there is grass between the stones of the ground, the benches would accept some new paintings.. But after all this work, the square will be a beautyful place, among a very interesting architecture.
