Court Square Fountain
This is in a lovely park in downtown Memphis. You can read its history -tragic in its early days (the death of a child is involved)- and see more pictures here. Vance Lauderdale also tells the story in the Memphis Flyer, including more information in a comment there.
The park has a gazebo and often hosts free musical entertainment. There are benches scattered around and plenty of shade. The Daughter and I had a nice time here recently.

Terrible story about the child who drowned. But pretty park! And old postcards are the greatest! Do anyone send postcards any more?ReplyDelete
