MacRobertson Fountain 1934

Repost this day 2017:

The delightful #MacphersonRoberstonFountain, 1934; it’s now screened from #StKildaRoad by blue fencing marking the edge of what will probably be a huge hole for the #MelbourneMetro train tunnel domain station cutting. The fountain was designed by Phillip Hudson, one of the architects of the #ShrineofRemembrance just behind, the sculpture by #PaulMontford, and it was paid for by chocolate king #MacPherson Robertson, as one of may gifts to the state for it’s Centenary, and you know, to distract from the depression.
