London – Tower Hamlets (Borough of) – Drinking Fountain at St. Mary’s Churchyard

I know that these drinking fountains are of marginal interest really, but I like them, a reminder of the time that many Londoners needed access to them to get clean water. This one dates to 1860, although they had to shuffle it around when they rebuilt the church.

Nice Norman style arch decoration.

And here’s what it looked like over 100 years ago.
