The Montefiore Monument was a gift to the city of Bridgetown, bestowed by John Montefiore in memory of his father, John Castello Montefiore who died from cholera in 1854. The fountain which was originally located in Beckwith Place, Lower Broad Street, was moved to its present location of Coleridge Street in 1940. Once a public drinking fountain, it ceased to serve this function, yet it is still called a fountain. For that reason, it is more properly called the Montefiore Monument. On each side of the fountain are relief sculptures representing the ideals of Justice, Fortitude, Temperance, and Prudence. This is a divided back postcard.
