1940s World Fountain

I’ve perhaps shown a grainy photo of this scene before, but thought I’d share this better resolution copy. Pictured in the 1940s is the World Fountain at David Livingstone Centre.


In 1935, Mrs Maxwell, the wife of the former Councillor Mr. A.B Maxwell gave £1,000 for the construction of this globe. Mrs Maxwell also left other donations around Blantyre including one for the construction of a bandstand in Kirkton Park.
