Sir Cowasjee Jehangir Readymoney Readymoney fountain

Fountain: Sir Cowasjee Jehangir Readymoney

Erection date: 1869

Inscription

{On a modern plaque:}
This fountain erected by the Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association was the gift of Sir Cowasjee Jehangir (Companion of the Star of India), a wealthy Parsee gentleman of Bombay, as a token of gratitude to the people of England for the protection enjoyed by him and his Parsee fellow countrymen under the British rule in India.
Inaugurated by H.R.H. Princess Mary, Duchess of Teck, 1869.
Restoration supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund 1999 - 2000.

Site: Readymoney fountain (3 memorials)

NW1, Regent's Park, Broad Walk

The four pediments of this edifice contain:
north - a clock face
west - Prince Albert relief bust
south - Jehangir relief bust
east - Queen Victoria relief bust.
At least that's who we think they are. You can see that they are so weather-worn it's difficult to be sure. 2014: We read reports that Royal Parks and Camden have noticed that restoration work is needed.

The plaque is lower down on the south, Jehangir, face.
