The James Scott Memorial Fountain on Detroit’s Belle Isle is a  masterpiece in marble. It was completed in 1925 & designed by Cass Gilbert who also designed the US Supreme Court. I definitely encourage you to read the Michpics post on the construction & controversy surrounding the fountain & honoree about whom J.L. Hudson opined: “Mr. Scott never did anything for Detroit in his lifetime and he never had a thought that was good for the city.”  

Scott took this photo in October at a fortuitous moment. See more in his Belle Isle gallery on Flickr!
