A merman in a fountain designed by Edwin Rickards and Henry Poole
…in front of the Victoria Rooms…Clifton, Bristol, Uk This fountain is unique in that the water flow is controlled by an anemometer, so that on windy days the pressure is reduced and water doesn’t blow onto the adjacent roadway.
The Victoria Rooms, also known as the Vic Rooms, houses the University of Bristol’s music department in Clifton, Bristol, England, on a prominent site at the junction of Queens Road and Whiteladies Road. The building, originally assembly rooms, was designed by Charles Dyer and was constructed between 1838 and 1842 in Greek revival style, and named in honour of Queen Victoria, who had acceded to the throne in the previous year.
