The Joseph Rosenberg Fountain

"Near the south end of Chicago's Grant Park stands this beautiful little 120-year-old fountain. It was a bequest from Joseph Rosenberg a one-time Chicagoan who went west and made his fortune. He never forgot his childhood as a newsboy in the area always going thirsty because there were no fountains."

Also:

"The 11-foot tall bronze figure holding a goblet and pitcher represents Hebe, daughter of Zeus and Hera. As the Goddess of Youth and the Cupbearer to the Gods, Hebe symbolizes rejuvenation," Public Art in Chicago writes.

"German sculptor Franz Machtl created the bronze sculpture, which was cast in Munich. The drinking fountain is enclosed by a columned structure which emulates a miniature Greek temple. Chicago architects Bauer and Hill designed the Greek-inspired structure."
