HISTORICAL POSTCARDS OF SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI
Doling Park (view 7 of 7), Fountain
 This postcard shows a little round garden with tropical plants and a fountain in the middle. From the woman's dress it looks to be early 1900s. The boats available for rental are docked behind the fountain. Three signs are visible attached to trees along the path. One advertises coffee, presumably for sale at a concession stand. Another reads "We will not be responsible for accidents," probably pertaining to the boat rentals. The third sign is illegible.
