Livingstone Memorial Fountain


1936 fountain wmThis previously unseen postcard has been shared by Gordon Cook here on Blantyre Project. Taken in 1936 to celebrate the “new” World Fountain, you can see exactly how clean, shiny and new it is! Of course, this is the fountain at David Livingstone Centre, still very much the focal point of the gardens today.

John Cornfield Played on it as a boy it’s fab
Billy Steven I remember In the 50’s there was a celebration there and some African people were dancing all around it
The Blantyre Project how strange it is to see it brand, spanking new. Lots more previously unseen photos coming.
