Peacock Fountain Christchurch

This fountain was unveiled in 1911 and bought by John Thomas Peacock. Today, after it has been moved three times, it stands in the Christchurch Botanical Gardens. Having photographed dozens of classical and contemporary fountains around the world, this is probably the oldest I have so far found in New Zealand. Certainly it is one of many highlights that make the gardens in Christchurch well worth a visit.
