8X10 Pastel Drawing on Arches Archival Paper with an 11x14 Mat
THE MULHOLLAND FOUNTAIN
The next 9 posts are the last of my Dal in Lala Land Series. Together we visited LA hot spots.
William Mulholland began as a ditch tender with the LA City Water Company and eventually became superintendent and chief engineer. He was responsible for building the 233-mile aqueduct that brings the Owens River water to Los Angeles. The water arrived in Los Angeles on November 5, 1913. Mulholland Drive was named after him for his contributions.
The Mulholland Fountain was dedicated August 1, 1940. It was dubbed the "Kool-Aid Fountain"because it was illuminated with colored light at night and located across from the entrance of Griffith Park. email: nancydaleo@icloud.com
