Lions on fountain in Leicester

Fountain of the Lions – Leicester OR Porto?

The Fountain of the Lions (Portuguese: Fonte dos Leões), is a 19th-century fountain built by French company Compagnie Générale des Eaux pour l’Etranger, in the civil parish of Cedofeita, Santo Ildefonso, Sé, Miragaia, São Nicolau e Vitória in municipality of Porto. Cast by the Val d’Osne foundry in France, it is a copy, in most part, of the fountain in the Town Hall Square of Leicester, England

What makes an English DOOR a proper solid door, a cut above the rest?

There are many entrances or doors available on the market today, and although their outward appearance may be almost identical, don’t be fooled into thinking that all composite products are equal! The quality of the materials, construction, overall design, locking and weather proofing systems can vary immensely from manufacturer to manufacturer and are often reflected in the price///CRIMSON TAZVINZWA//
