Cathy Johnson, "Hall of Waters Lion"
by Urban Sketchers
Fabriano CP paper
This is the fountain at the end of the 'Worlds Longest Water Bar' in the historic Hall of Waters, Excelsior Springs. It was built in the 1930s to accommodate the many customers and patients of the healing waters in this location. (More naturally occurring types of mineral waters than anyplace in the world except Baden Baden.)
Architects, artists, and photographers from all over the world visit the Art Deco building to this day."
