Not the Wortham Fountain

Recommended Posts

I came across this the other day outside the offices of The Province newspaper in Vancouver, BC:

Looks a lot like the Wortham Fountain on Allen Parkway. I remember being told once that the artist made a bunch of them, and that there's one in Australia somewhere, too.

What a ripoff!

Eh. You're not allowed to play in that fountain anyhow. Unlike the crazy big tree-looking fountain at Discovery Green. That fountain kicks butt and is refreshing on a hot summer day.

How so? Do you assume that the one in Houston was the first one?

Reeks of fountain envy.

its just a fountain, and its not one of the greatest importance in Houston. I prefer Mecom Fountain in Hermann Park.

Especially after someone put soap in it.

There was a fountain that looked very similar to that in Post Oak Mall (CS,TX) but was removed many years ago. Wonder if it's related. :mellow:
