Notes NOTES: The Montefiore Fountain, a cast iron drinking fountain, was presented by John Montefiore in memory of his father, John Castello Montefiore, a Bridgetown merchant who had died of cholera in 1864.Opened to the public in November 1865, the fountain was first located at Beckwith Place, Lower Broad Street; it was moved to Coleridge Street in 1940 (and is no longer attached to the water supply).
