    One month after the terror attacks on Oslo and Utøya, there's still flowers being placed on central places in town. Here the old fountain at Youngstorget, with a clear view to the damaged government buildings in the background, and at the same time the street vendors on the plaza have taken up their trading.

      And for the Fountains around the world group, which this was invited to:
      The fountain at Youngstorget in Oslo is a copy of the original iron cast lion head fountain from 1860, which was dumped in the harbour basin in 1942, worn out and in bad shape. This one is a copy of an identical fountain in the Western Norwegian town Stavanger. Its the largest cast iron fountain in Oslo. I believe the original fountain was cast in England.
      Here's the original fountain, more than 100 years ago:

      You have always so much information to share. The fountains were so beautiful with the flowers, I took a couple of short videos too in addition to photos.
