Cette fontaine date de la seconde moitié du 19e siècle. Commandée par le maire de la ville de Bordeaux en France afin de célébrer l’arrivée des eaux dans la ville, elle orna, avec l’une de ses 5 jumelles, les extrémités des Allées de Tourny, jusque dans les années 1960.

Réalisée dans la fonderie d’art Barbezat, médaille d’or de l’exposition universelle de Paris de 1855, son agencement a été conçu par le sculpteur Mathurin Moreau. C’est le cadeau offert par La Maison Simons pour les 400 ans de la Ville de Québec.

This fountain dates back to the second half of the 19th century. Commissioned by the mayor of Bordeaux, France, to celebrate the arrival of running water in the city, it and five others like it would stand at both ends of Allées de Tourny up until the 1960s.

Produced in the Barbezat art foundry, the Fountain of Tourny was designed by sculptor Mathurin Moreau, who won gold for his work at the Paris World Fair in 1855. The fountain is being presented by La Maison Simons as a gift to the City of Quebec for its 400th anniversary.
