The Doulton Fountain

The Doulton Fountain is the largest terracotta fountain in the world, as well as
the best surviving example of its kind. The fountain has been beautifully
restored and relocated to the front of the People's Palace.

The Doulton Fountain was gifted to the city by Sir Henry Doulton, and first
unveiled at the Empire Exhibition held at Kelvingrove Park in 1888.
The fountain was then moved to Glasgow Green in 1890.
