Name: Fountain of Time Location: Midway Plaisance (In between 59th and 60th on Cottage Grove)
Officially installed in 1920 (dedicated in 1922), the Fountain of Time is a monument honoring the first 100 of years of peace between the US and England. The monument depicts a bunch of people walking in front of Father Time, who stares at them blankly and unimpressed, as fathers are oft to do. What, we didn’t do enough? Can’t you just be happy that we’re happy? I’m sorry that I didn’t want to go into the family timekeeping business, but oblique academia is where I belong!
Anyways… where were we? Ah yes, the Fountain of Time. It is gorgeous. Go there, have fun.
