Previously I've written about a pair of drinking fountains in Yarra Park at either end of Brunton Avenue (see thumbnail images, right). Recently I found another one in Carlton and, as you can see, the design of all three fountains is identical.
This one is in Hardy Reserve, directly behind the Melbourne General Cemetery.
It bears a plaque explaining the reserve is named after Cr Robert John Hardy who was a local representative for Victoria Ward on Melbourne City Council from 17 May 1915 to 23 May 1937.
