Dave, those are really wild, Providence must have gotten some of that "stimulus" money for restoration. Bob

These types of fountains always weirded me out... still do! BUT, I enjoyed your story and photos. Would love to see the landscaped context for the fountains.

These are fascinating, Dave - they look like something you might see on the set of a science fiction film.

Great eye, buddy.
