This fountain is in front of the City Hall of Texas City, Texas. It's a monument to the city that rose out of the ashes of the deadliest industrial accident in U.S. history. The town was virtually destroyed and about 600 people were killed when a ship carrying over 2000 tons of ammonium nitrate exploded -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TexasCityDisaster .
