The American Fountain, Market Place, Stratford-upon-Avon – Royal Arms with British Lion

The American Fountain, Market Place, Stratford-upon-Avon – Royal Arms with British Lion
philadelphia attractions
Image by ell brown
One of the things I wanted to retake in Stratford was The American Fountain, as I only previously had one dark shot of it. I went all around it getting detailed shots of it.

It is in Market Place, near the top corner of Rother Street. By this point the market was mostly packed up.

From BBC h2g2 – The American Fountain, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, UK

Standing prominently in the Market Square of Stratford-upon-Avon, is a remarkable piece of masonry – the American Fountain. Whether you are wandering into the town from the railway station, or even just passing through by car or bus, the edifice is practically impossible to miss, and it is certainly worth stopping to take a closer look.

An Historical Monument

The Shakespeare Memorial Fountain and Clock Tower (as it is officially known) was presented to the town of Stratford by American journalist, and some would say philanthropist, George W Childs of Philadelphia in 1887. Built to honour not only William Shakespeare, but also Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee, the amazing monument was unveiled at the time by actor Sir Henry Irving1. Victorian Gothic in style, the fountain is constructed mostly from Peterhead granite and freestone, resembling a small gothic cathedral of sorts, complete with a set of bells designed by JA Cossin’s of Birmingham and a clock above each face of which sits a caricature of a fairy from Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Also prominent on the fountain are carved stone lions and eagles, representing Great Britain and the United States of America respectively, while horse-troughs line each side. However, the fountain no longer provides water, so neither do these, and flowers happily grow in them instead. In 1984, the local council and other benefactors had the clock repaired after a long period of stoppage, and an ‘American Fountain Centenary Celebration’ was held in 1987.

George W Childs

The man responsible for the Memorial Fountain was George William Childs, a journalist and publisher of note. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, on 12 May, 1829, he was given a state school education. At the age of thirteen, Childs served a short fifteen months with the United States Navy before making his way to Philadelphia, where in 1843 he became a clerk in a bookshop. A mere two years later, he was a partner in the publishing house of Childs & Peterson. So successful was this publishing business that in 1864 he was able to purchase the Philadelphia Public Ledger, which at the time was a very little-known newspaper.

George Childs was instrumental in changing the newspaper into a respected publication, and it soon became one of the most influential journals in the country. With his newfound wealth, Childs did not become a greedy miser. He gave money freely to support education and charity; and with a deep love of England and its writers, he funded memorial windows to William Cowper and George Herbert in Westminster Abbey in 1877, another window to John Milton in St Margaret’s Church, Westminster in 1888, plus other monuments both in England (the Shakespeare Memorial Fountain amongst them) and America (a monument to the writer Edgar Allen Poe one of many). His selflessness continued, along with his love of all things literature-related, right up until his death in Philadelphia on 3 February, 1894.

Meet Me at the Fountain

Despite the importance of the presence of Shakespeare’s residence, and the Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre by the River Avon, it could safely be argued that the American Fountain is the focal point of the town of Stratford. Situated at the junction of Rother Street and Windsor Street, it’s just right as a central meeting place from which you can easily walk to many of the nearby tourist attractions. Also sitting opposite is the White Swan pub, a venue for many jazz bands and visitors, plus a Farmers Market bustles around the fountain every Friday.

There are a plethora of things to buy at these markets, from carrots and tomatoes to old books, from collectable ‘antiques’ to watch batteries. The fresh foods available are mostly local produce and are not only reasonably priced but very good eating. A lot of locals prefer to get their fresh fruit and vegetables from the market, rather than trekking to the local supermarket. Thus, the American Fountain provides not only a memorial to Shakespeare as intended, but also upholds the ideals of the man who came up with it in the first place, by having people share their wealth.

This gothic monument is called the American Fountain, a gift from George Childs of Philadelphia to Stratford in Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee year (1887).

On each corner it has a lion and an eagle. The lion represents Great Britain, the eagle the United States.

It is Grade II* listed.

Number One Polo Player Facundo Pieres Wins Royal Salute Jubilee Cup, in Final Match of U.S. Northeastern High-goal Season


Greenwich, CT, USA (PRWEB) September 09, 2013

Supermodel Stephanie Seymour presented Peter Brant, player on the winning Royal Salute team and founder of Greenwich Polo Club, with the Royal Salute Jubilee Cup trophy – a handmade, Waterford Crystal Lismore Cobalt Decanter generously donated by Waterford Crystal. In addition, the players of both teams were awarded specially engraved Waterford Crystal Lismore Cobalt tumblers, by Michael McLaren of Royal Salute.

As players raised their glasses in celebration of the occasion, Facundo commented on his team’s victory: “This match, which marked the closing of the polo season in Greenwich, was electrifying to play. It was high-goal polo at its best – in the last four and a half minutes of the final chukker, Airstream added an incredible 5 goals, making them tough to beat, but Royal Salute held on to our lead to win. The polo and the event were of the highest caliber – on behalf of all the players our thanks to Royal Salute for championing it.

Esquire’s Matthew Kitchen presented Steve Lefkowitz, polo patron and player on the winning Royal Salute team, with the bespoke Royal Salute MVP Jacket, created by Norton & Sons. Avril Graham of Bazaar presented the Cartier individual winning player prizes. Leighton Jordan, Managing Director of the Greenwich Polo Club presented the Best Playing Pony blanket to Facundo Pieres for his mare which played in the final chukker.

Malcolm Borwick, England polo team player and Royal Salute Ambassador, who was a guest commentator at the match said, “It was great to be back at Greenwich today, having captained Prince Harry’s team at the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup back in May. Royal Salute’s continued presence in the polo world is based on the shared values that the sport and the brand holds, and we look forward to next year’s edition already.”

The United States Polo Association’s CEO Peter Rizzo added, “We are excited to culminate the Northeastern U.S. high-goal polo season with this special event that showcased the athleticism of these talented players and their horses. Congratulations to Royal Salute victors, and to Greenwich Polo Club for hosting another successful signature event.”
