I was back there today, Sunday, not for sport this time, more passing through on my way home, and I took notice of this disused drinking fountain on the edge of Yarra Park, very near on Brunton Avenue.
I've seen it before but never stopped to really look at it.
You tend to miss the detail flying past in the car and it isn't exactly on a busy walking route. Today I was on my pushbike so I was going slow enough to take in the decoration. Especially the carved panels above the recessed openning depicting chevrons and frozen fountain motifs.
I seem to remember there is another one of these on the pathway from Richmond Station to the MCG between Punt Road Oval. I'll have toi check it out next Saturday and see if it is the same.
