Drinking Fountain, Stepney Green E1 - Tower Hamlets

Red and grey granite drinking fountain with a large red bowl, trefoil headed plaques and a small truncated spire. Erected in 1884 at Rutland Street School (now demolished) in memory of Leonard Montefiore, East End philanthropist, and moved to its current location in 1939. The fountain is not functioning and has missing architectural details from the top of the spire. The Local Authority is working towards a repair scheme.
