Sinclair drinking fountain Edinburgh

Sinclair Fountain - West End, Princes Street, Edinburgh pre 1926
Here we are looking life in the eye at street level back in 1926. It shows people around the Sinclair Fountain with Princes Street in the background. Its probably one of the best close ups of the fountain that exists.
The 'Sinclair Fountain' was erected in 1859 by Catherine Sinclair for horses, dogs and any thirsty passer-by. It was eventually removed in early 1926 as it presented too much of an obstacle for traffic as you can see from the protective bollards.
Catherine Sinclair (17 April 1800 – 6 August 1864) was a Scottish novelist and writer of kids books and is probably better known as the person who discovered Sir Walter Scott's was the anonymous author of the 'The Waverley Novels'. After the fountain disappeared in 1926, many years later part of it resurfaced at Steadfastgate' at Gosforth Place on the Water of Leith cycle path and can be seen there today. You can also see the Sinclair Monument on the corner of St Colme Street and North Charlotte Street.
