Equestrian Fountain Gone Missing

http://apnoeashop.com/?p=custom-writing-service--s A beautiful equestrian fountain once sat at the intersection of Hull Street and the Petersburg Turnpike (Cowardin Avenue). According to The Valentine and its history piece on Manchester entitled “Manchester: From Sister City to South Richmond”, the fountain was built in 1888 but disappeared sometime in the 1920s:

http://burlofans.ca/?p=research-paper-about-a-career “Built in 1888, this drinking fountain provided passers-by with refreshment at Manchester’s busiest intersection. It later moved to Decatur Street, where the fountain’s pedestal stood for many years. The female figure later disappeared; some believe that she was removed during the early 1920s after being damaged during a storm.”

nursing research papers It’s unfortunate that statue no longer exists. I wonder if the City of Richmond would have constructed a roundabout for it?
