Fountain of Time

This sculpture by Lorado Taft is situated at the western edge of the Midway Plaisance within Washington Park.

Built in 1920, the fountain was inspired by Henry Austin Dobson's poem, "Paradox of Time," and created as a monument to the first 100 years of peace between the United States and Great Britain, resulting from the Treaty of Ghent in 1814.
