Merthyr Tydfil, Wales, UK

A fountain like this is reflective of the wealth that used to pour into Merthyr Tydfil and the steam coal that used to flow out. It was given to the town in 1906 by a wealthy industrialist. Perhaps he was saying thank you for making him a millionaire. Perhaps he was assuaging his conscience. [2015]
