Paris Fountain – Dark green fountains have dotted Paris’s streetscapes since 1872. These fountains were commissioned by philanthropist and art collector, Richard Wallace, to help alleviate the water shortage after the war in 1870-1871. The population was struggling to get clean water, resorting to beer and wine because it was cheaper than potable water when it was available. These fountains are known as Wallace fountains or temperance fountains. They are still in use today, maintained by the municipal water company Eau de Paris.
