wow i did'nt realize they tore it down but I Left
EP in 67 It was my most remembered thing. I would
catch the bus home from work there and while I
was waiting I'd sit by the fountain. Its a shame,
it to me was a land mark of downtown EP.

I love the work you do with the archives. Thank you and continue keeping us informed of the past.

That's horrible. You'd never even consider the evolution of the plaza before reading this article. To think the "fountain" looks the way it does today because of the destruction of the original. I would've liked to see that one. Keep up the great work! I love reading these :)
