Historical photos of the old fountain at the LIRR station [updated with more photos]

sealfountainIn response to my fountain proposal from yesterday, a reader named Doug sent in photos of the old fountain at the LIRR station. These old photos sometimes drives me nuts. While I don’t fully know the history behind it all, whose bright idea was it to destroy such a beautiful feature of our city? Well, at least now we have a billboard.

  1. What’s not apparent in the photos that I and Doug sent is the size of this thing. It’s at least ten feet tall. It was a personal gift to the City in 1910 from William Reynolds.
