A Project Finished

Last night the DeSoto fountain was rededicated. This fountain was one of our signatures. I grew up with it and thought of it as being mine. In the early 40's the lights were removed and the steel was given to the war effort. It took 20 years to replace them. At the dedication a friend of mine, Connie Crowther took these pictures. Connie is a well known photographer and now my first visiting photographer

About 8 years ago the fountain was turned off. The city had a very difficult time getting someone who would repair the fountain. But now the water flows stronger then ever.
