  • Fountains in Trafalgar Square - one of the main attractions in London. Eastern and western fountains are named Betty Lord (Lord Beatty) and Lord Jellicoe (Lord Jellicoe).

    These fountains are not luxurious, but perfect for the entire architectural ensemble that surrounds them, without them it is impossible to Trafalgar Square. Built in 1840 with a single, completely practical purpose - to limit the number of possible demonstrators protesting reducing such large buildings the actual size of the area. Worth mentioning if the water in the fountains fed from an artesian well.

    In 1930, the fountains began to reconstruct Sir Edwin Lutens (Sir Edwin Lutyens), and only after 9 years, all the work was finished. After the upgrade, the fountains were on the bronze mermaid, newts and dolphins.
