El Alamein fountain, originally uploaded by Powerhouse Museum.

This image of the El Alamein fountain was photographed for the Sydney Modernism self-guided walking tour. One of our photographers went to all the sites featured in this pamphlet to photograph them including this fountain. The fountain is situated in the heart of Kings Cross at the corner of Darlinghurst Road and Macleay Street. It was designed by Bob Woodward who won a design competition for Fitzroy Gardens in 1958. It is a memorial to the soldiers who died during the Second World War.
