Fountains at the Court of Flowers at Golden Gate Exposition
Water cascades in the Court of Flowers at the Golden Gate Exposition, San Francisco, were illuminated with light bulbs protected from water and dampness by a plastic covered wire mesh. The plastic was used because it was the only low cost translucent material which could be bent in the shape required by the curving fountain.
