London by Day and Night – David W.Bartlett, 1852:

You wander forth from your hotel, and stand upon the fine Square which contains the reservoir and Nelson’s monument. You are not pleased with either, for they have serious faults. The fountain is not equal to its position – you are reminded of the jet from a hand-syringe – it is so thread-like and insignificant.

    Bit late in coming, but the tiles are just municipal swimming pool and Nelson so heroic….
