Historic Fountains in Temple Square

Temple Square is home to several of these historic cast iron and brass drinking fountains. This version probably dates to the early 1900s (1910s?) and is operated by foot pedal. It also features a mouth guard and an arcing water projection, designed to improve sanitary conditions. The Murdock Mfg Company has been operating since 1853.
