Cast iron drinking fountain trophy

Original post 30 March 2020

This is a bit hidden in #AlbertPark, near #FitzroyStreetStKilda, and it’s very nice but I don’t really know what it’s about apart from what’s on the plaque. I’m guessing the VBA is the Victorian Bowls Association, and maybe the SMCCBC is the Sth Melb City (Council?) Bowls Club ? Update : it was the SthMelb Cricket Club Bowls Club – but why it’s here in St Kilda, I’m not sure, since the club was at the Sth #LakesideOval at the other side of the park, presumably moved here in 1994 when the oval became a soccer ground. But why did the winners of the comp get a whole elaborate #DrinkingFountain and not just a silver platter or cup ? We may never know.
