ThisDayThatYear: A FOUNTAIN FOR A GOVERNOR
Thursday November 18,2021 by Team Khaki
This day, 152 years ago, the Flora Fountain became a part of the city’s urban landscape. Designed by architect Norman Shaw and sculpted by James Forsyth, it was shipped from London and assembled here. #DidYouKnow?
It was originally called the Frere Fountain in honour of Governor Sir Bartle Frere, and was supposed to be installed at the Botanical Gardens in Byculla!
