The Lord Street Mermaid poses with a large fish in a fountain in Southport, on the west coast of England.
The location is part of Southport’s Lord Street Town Trail. The mermaid fountain was commissioned by businessman Walter Connard as part of the entrance to his Palladium Picture Palace which opened in 1914. Lord Street itself is a beautiful tree-lined main street going through this resort town, and is chock full of businesses catering to visitors and tourists.
The Lord Street Mermaid was created in bronze. The mouth of the fish in the mermaid’s hands is wide open, and a brass nozzle in the mouth creates the fountain effect.
