Where has the Courthouse Fountain gone?

As downtown grows ever more tall anonymous buildings, memories of earlier incarnations of Vancouver continue to be erased. The fountain in front of the Art Gallery was always lovely to pass. Now it's been filled in and bricked over. The VAG's days at this location are numbered. I hope this building, with its incomparable stone, marble, skylights and spiral staircases does not fall to the wrecking ball.

Below are Vancouver Archives pictures of the "Courthouse fountain" in 1967.
