Mrs Leigh

Inscription

{Carved into the western end:}
The gift of Mrs Leigh, Summerville Halifax 1899
{Carved into the northern side:}
Metropolitan Drinking Fountain & Cattle Trough Association

There is a comma between Leigh and Summerville so "Summerville Halifax" describes Mrs Leigh's origins rather than "Halifax" being Mrs Leigh Summerville's home town.
