    Reducing this clip's current date range, this drinking fountain was unveiled sometime during 1911, as the inscription on it reveals.....

    "In grateful and loyal memory of Edward VII, Rex et Imperator, Erected by subscriptions raised by Jewish inhabitants of East London, 1911".

    More information on the fountain can be found here...
