Hyde Park, Archibald Fountain (Theme Day: Photo of the Year)
The Archibald Fountain is an art deco style fountain in Hyde Park, near College Street, designed by French artist Francois Sicard and unveiled on 14 March 1932. The fountain is named after J.F. Archibald, owner and editor of The Bulletin, a newspaper which later became a magazine that encouraged writers to write about Australia. Last year, marked the ten year anniversary of the first photo I posted on this blog which was also a photo of this fountain which can be seen here. I returned to the fountain to take more photos including the one I posted on the anniversaryhere and this photo posted today from the same angle as the original.
