Built 1929. This fountain was placed in Albert Square (now King George Square) between Albert Street and the from the imposing stone steps that led to the Brisbane City Hall main entrance foyer. As City Hall was built from 1920-29, it is assumed that the fountain was a late build. When Albert Square was remodeled into King George Square with its unnderground carpark, the fountain had to be moved. It was relocated to a major Wynnum West roundabout in 1969.
