St Andrews, Fixing the Fountain

St Andrews, Fixing the Fountain
This memorial is erected in a central part of Market-street in St. Andrew's, where the thoroughfare is of unusual width. The stone used in the structure is principally Dumfries red sandstone, obtained from the well-known Corncockle quarries on the estate of Sir Alexander Jardine, Bart, Lockerbie, and while an agreeable warmth of colour is thus obtained, a telling effect of contrast is secured by the introduction of columns and copings of polished Dalbeattie granite.

A good and detailed quote from the Scottish architects website Joe. I'm sure the work is done by now! I look forward to another picture of the fountain in full flow. Good street view. Cheers, Rosa.
