After the parade for Malcolm Butler (Super Bowl hero) Saturday afternoon, I passed by the Bloom Fountain and took this picture walking back to my vehicle. I have always admired this beautiful fountain which is named for the Greek mythology, Hebe, who is the goddess of youth.
The fountain was bequeathed in 1926 by Louis Bloom, a prominent Vicksburg Businessman. It was designed and sculpted at a cost of $6,500 by Albert Weiblan Granite Company of New Orleans.
Hebe ~ Goddess of Youth!
