1899 Photo of Fountain Curated by the Chester County Historical Society

The Historical Society just located this photo for us—the clearest and best look we’ve had of the fountain in its original state. Taken just ten years after the fountain’s installation, we can now see the brick piers supporting the base, the jets shooting up from the base of the fountain and the structure of the spray balls at the top. The view is to the northwest, with the main buildings of the old hospital across Marshall Street.
