Fountains of Thirst

To die from thirst in Paris would never be a good excuse because those green fountains with four lovely female statues found all over the city were not built for ornamental reasons. They exist to quench thirst.

There are 108 so-called Fontaines Wallace with potable water trickling down from their domed tops. They were named after the philanthropist who donated the first fifty drinking fountains to Paris in 1872.
