Phari’s Photos – Bartholdi Fountain

Photos and words by @Pharipedia. Phari is one of my favorite photographers who contributes to our Instagram. He’s volunteered to share a bit more with us from his adventures around town. Phari lives on Capitol Hill.

“The Fountain of Light and Water (frequently called Bartholdi Fountain) was designed by sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi (1834-1904) who is best known for creating the Statue of Liberty. The U.S. Congress purchased the cast-iron fountain in 1877 and placed it at the original site of the U.S. Botanic Garden where the Capitol Reflecting Pool is today. The fountain was moved to its current location on Independence Ave, SW in 1932.”
