Lamp or fountain ? Both
Situated at the crossing of the Rue du General Leclerc and the Rue Mignard, this strange contraption is simultaneously a street lamp and a fountain.
Since 1778, the fountain always existed here but, at the beginning of the 20th century, it was moved due to the lack of space on the sidewalk.
After numerous protests from the inhabitants (who liked their fountain and its good quality water) it was built back.
Since the room was still scarce and the town wanted to keep a light at this crossing, a decision was made to invent this strange and unique "thing".
The fountain is now connected to the public water network and delivers perfectly potable water.
