D. W. Newcomers Sons Funeral Home Fountains

Description:

Edward Buehler Delk, designer of the Country Club Plaza, designed a wall fountain for the columbarium room. This fountain, which is no longer operational, consisted of a jet installed within a ceramic-tiled arch, seven feet high and five feet wide. The components for this fountain were purchased from standard stock patterns of the Mueller Mosaic Company in Trenton, New Jersey, at a cost of $150.
