Working At Last

I've shown you the Boer War Memorial that is found on University Ave at Queen St before in 2013 (HERE). It is a wonderful piece done by artist Walter Allward but it has been several years since the fountain in front of it has worked. I think the fact that the PanAm Games were coming here this summer got all of the right people working on solving some of the fountain problems around town finally.

Oh yes, that is a beautiful fountain and memorial. It's great that it has been fixed.

Well it was worth the wait

It's about time! I think at some point I've heard it was an Allward work.

The games provided the right motivation! Great shot.

Yay! It's always good when something gets fixed.

Imagine what could happen if T.O. got the Olympic Games.

What a great composition ... terrific perspective - all those vertical lines! And the fountains are nice, too. Water is very damaging; it's probably hard to keep fountains like this running properly.

Goodness it looks fantastic Pat, you've taken your shot from the perfect angle. Yes, sometimes it takes the prospect of international visitors to a city to get things moving, it's happened here :)
