    Someone REALLY needs to explain the irony of replacing plastic bottles with a plastic water fountain to Sadiq Khan, it's evidently lost on him. How long before it's kicked over…?

    Now who's going to stick a 'Peckham Spring' label on it…?

    It appears they were made that way so that people can spot them. And they're made of steel.

    Water Fountains in London

    Admittedly a Peckham Springs label would be great :)

    I know it’s years ago but when I was a kid every park had a water fountain that you could drink from.

    One of the pervasive issues that people have with water fountains is cleanliness and hygiene.

    I’m guessing the white surface tested well for either not needing much to stay clean looking, or looking plasticky enough that people associate it with newness.

    At any rate, it’s such an important step, I genuinely couldn’t give a shit what it looks like. I hope we get some at school.

    I remember those, not sure they were fit to drink from though.

    It's amusing to me there are old Victorian water fountains all over London (few if any work) but the idea of having them is apparently revolutionary and new to some.
