This monument, which also includes a clock tower, was the gift of a Philadelphian newspaper magnate to the town in 1887 in celebration of Queen Victoria's golden jubilee. Unveiled in October of that year by the famous Shakespearean actor Henry Irving, the fountain is decorated with engravings of quotations. Look out for an unusual spelling in the quotation from Act V of King Henry VIII.
