Today’s Image • Savannah’s Forsyth Park

In the center of old Savannah is one of its largest parks and its centerpiece is a nineteenth century fountain. The city planners worked to emulate Parisian elements when designing the city. According to some historical accounts, the fountain is an exact replica of the Fontaine des Mers in Paris but that isn’t exactly true. It is actually a design first shown in 1851 at the Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace in London, England and was ordered from the ironworks catalog of the company that created it named Janes & Kirtland. Regardless, it is the most visited attraction in Savannah.
