THE FOUNTAIN AT KING'S FROM THE ARCHWAY OF FELLOWS' BUILDINGS

THE FOUNTAIN AT KING'S FROM THE ARCHWAY OF FELLOWS' BUILDINGS

In this view we are standing beneath the large archway which pierces the centre of Fellows Buildings and has been facetiously called "Jumbo," since it is large enough to house an elephant with comfort. Architecturally, however, it is quite in harmony with this large block of buildings, put up in 1724, and now the oldest secular part of the college. In front of us is the fountain set here in 1879, and beyond is the main gateway built in the nineteenth century, in the midst of a long and impressive stone screen which fronts King's Parade.
