Thirsty Kid

One of my favourite topics in history is water supply, as there was such a long battle to achieve safe supplies for us all. The London Drinking Fountain and Horse Trough Association built loads of fresh water fountains in British cities, in the 19th century, and many towns still have their granite horse troughs, often converted to flower displays. They continue to work in poor countries.

I love this image, about a fire hydrant with a cup for drinking, with a street urchin using it.
