Naples reader Elizabeth Flynn brought up a half-century-old feature that many of us might take for granted.

“I’m curious about the big black water fountain that sits at the entrance to the Park Shore neighborhood,” the nearby resident said. “Do you know anything about it? When and who built it?”

Thank you for the inquiry that I thought might be quickly resolved. I took the hunt to Naples City Hall, checking with some folks and swimming through several hundred public documents, sure that the answer would splash out.
