The “ladies” from the Taylor Park fountain are lifted onto a waiting truck on Wednesday afternoon. The fountain pieces are being transported to Alabama where the cast iron pieces will be repaired and the zinc pieces, including the ladies, will be recast in aluminum. The original ladies will return in the spring, along with the rest of the fountain.
