That fountain in Albert Square

Now I have to say that I can’t remember the fountain returning to Albert Square.

It was designed by Thomas Worthington and erected in the square for the old Queens Golden Jubilee in 1897.

There will be someone who can tell me when it vanished from Albert Square.

I don’t remember it there when I first discovered the square back in 1969 as a young student up from London and bored with the college library I took off across the city exploring my new home.

Nor as I said can I remember it giuing back which was in 1997.

Location; Albert Square, Manchester
