Shelf locator: PC FOUN
Content: Printed on border: "Now the drinking fountains have to build up their reputation upon the recognised fact of their yielding no streams but such as are distinguished for genuine purity. The fair imagery of the fountain is to be ever associated with the pure freshness of its waters. This view of the subject has been thoughtfully entertained by those who are most energetic in procuring the erection of drinking fountains. The purity of the water is held to be absolutely essential to the very existence of a drinking fountain." Includes additional text.
