When the Cranes return to Clark and North
Unfortunately, vandals and scavengers soon found the four spouting cranes at its base soon too much of a temptation to resist. One by one the cranes disappeared - a while back I saw one of them splayed forlornly on its side, dangling from the metal bars that connected it to the fountain, before it, too, disappeared. And there was one.
Now all four cranes are back, spitting exuberantly into the wind. (Thank goodness they're not camels.) Let's hope they're now treated with a bit more respect, and maybe even a little enhanced security.
