What has long; passed for a drink
mx fountain, although most of the
imc as dry as Sahara, at the inter
action of Cameron and Royal
treets, is no more. iNothing save
[ho site in now visible.
What was thought to be a sine
ua r.on to the .market house, where
lan could quench his thirst, horses
culd drink, birds sip and dogs lap
'atcr ad Jibitum.
Over five years ago patriotic so
etics of women dedicated this
nmtain. There was a large gath
ring of people on the occasion,
mcng them William Jennings
ryan, who indulges in nothing
?ronger than grape juice. The
luntain anticipated the arid period
lfedufrh.jwhich the country is now
issing when aqua Cameroni would
; virtually the only drink dispensed
Alexandria.
One of the cannon used in the
vr of .1812 was utilized in the
anufacturo of the fountain. It
[oved a failure'from the first, the
dw being insufficient, and often
e water was cut off altogether,
^irsty creatures who sighed for
idam's ale" found themselves as
|e troops of Tenia, the figure of
Icech used by Job in describing a
ravan's disappointment in coming
! what was supposed to be a well
j the desert.
|fhe fountain was not appreciated
residents of the locality, and it
in became of no utility, petitions
re sent to Council to have it re
ived. The ladies, however, ob
ted, and appealed earnestly to
; city fathers to let it remain,
was suggesetd that it be Removed
the market court, but this pro
sal was fought also.
The advent of' the automobile, es
:ia!ly after Cameron street had
?n paved with vitrified brick,
do it a menace to machines, and,
e Temple Bar in London, it be
ne a rock of offense to many.
