Buckingham Fountain, officially known as the 'Clarence Buckingham Memorial Fountain' is one of Chicago's most popular landmarks. It is located in Grant Park at the center of a formally laid out garden. During the dedication in August of 1927, John Philip Sousa conducted while his band played "Pomp and Circumstance" before an audience of 50,000 people.
The fountain rises more than 7 meters high (23ft) and consists of 3 layers of basins surrounded by four pairs of bronze seahorses. Each sea horse symbolizes a state bordering Lake Michigan (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin) while the fountain represents the lake itself.
Chicago's landmark is considered one of America's finest fountains due to its Beaux-Arts-style landscape design, finely wrought bronze sculpture and innovative use of technology.
