Fountains I knew- (11).

Pyramid Fountain-St. Petersburg-Russia

During the Queen’s Peace Fountain campaign-1990 to 2001, I wrote  to former Leader of the Soviet Union-Mr. Gorbachev, enquiring if  he could arrange for a copy of  the drawings for this fountain.  Most grateful to him for supplyimg a set.  This beautiful dense & frothy plume was the one envisaged for The Queen’s Peace Fountain, sadly  not achieved.  The set of drawings  & history of  The Queen’s Peace Fountain, achieved in July 2001, is now deposited in the City Council’s archives.
Designed by N.Michetti & M.Zemtsov – 1721 to 1724-. Summer Palace, Petrodvorets, near St. Petersburg-Russia.
