Tom Parker Fountain - Theme Day - movement


 
City Daily Photo have theme days on the first of the month.  Today's theme is movement.  This fountain's water puts on a special display each night.  There is a lot of movement in height from low to spectacularly high.  



The Tom Parker Fountain was built in 1936 and was officially opened on Christmas Eve.  Tom Parker, a Napier menswear retailer donated money for this purpose to the city.  Hed been on one of his regular overseas visits and was impressed by a modern illuminated fountain and felt Napier should have a similar one.  Between 8 pm and midnight the fountain's varying water jet heights and coloured lights play in a synchronised way.
