Fountain Photo Challenge – Urban Fountains

Here is another photo for the urban fountain photo challenge. This is a photo of the Swann Memorial Fountain in Logan Square Philadelphia. Designed by Alexander Calder in 1924, the figures are of Native Americans meant to symbolize the three major waterways around Philadelphia. The Delaware River is represented as a man, the Schuykill River by a woman, and the Wissahickon Creek as a girl.
