Details


The importance of public access to
drinking water has declined with time.
In nineteenth century, many houses
were built without water connections.
John Frazers gift of two drinking
fountains to the people of Sydney was a
generous and welcome gesture. The
two imposing Frazer drinking fountains
were erected in the 1880s. They were
designed by the City Architect, Thomas
Sapsford, and carved in Pyrmont stone
by Lawrence Beveridge. The basins for
the fountains were made of granite.
