With joy shall ye draw water

With joy shall ye draw water

This is a detail of an old public water fountain set in the wall of a “great house” here in Colchester. Apparently something like 9 houses were destroyed to make room for this monster, so perhaps the fountain was an attempt to assuage some guilt?

For those who would like a little context, WeatherGirl posted a nice shot of the whole fountain.
