Description
Fountain that until c. 1962 stood on Grand River St. N., in front of the post office. In 1905, during the re-union, the Paris Old Boys and Old Girls contributed $1500 to place a fountain in front of the post office. It was erected in 1912. On the roadway side were two troughs -- the upper for horses and the lower for dogs. On the other side was a fountain for Parisians.

This image was printed on the forty-first page of photographs in At the Forks of the Grand: Volume II by D. A. Smith.
Notes
The fountain depicted in this photograph stood from 1912 to roughly 1962. The photograph appears to have been taken earlier during this time period.

The original matting notes that the project under which the original photograph was enlarged was celebrating the bicentennial of Ontario, which indicates that the copy scanned was produced circa 1984.
