CommentsThe original site was opposite local board offices. A Reardon memorial with inscription. Removed to Lansdown Rd, Tottenham 1904. This trough is one of many Reardon Memorials. It is also one of a few that contain the inscription "METROPOLITAN DRINKING FOUNTAIN AND CATTLE TROUGH ASSOCIATION" instead of the more usual "METROPOLITAN DRINKING FOUNTAIN & CATTLE TROUGH ASSOCIATION".
