This fountain appears to have been removed and may have been one which was situated at the corner of either Taylor Street or John Street and Cathedral Street, Glasgow. A surviving example of these Scott and Rae designed fountains commissioned by William Annan can be found at the junction of Renfield Street and Cowcaddens Road.
