    Although Lotta's Fountain may be now inactive and filled with bits of trash, its history is overflowing. It's not very large, unlike artist Douglas Tilden's other Market Street statues, but it's probably the coolest looking. It has a great Alice in Wonderland feel, with lion heads waiting to spew water into their bowls. It feels like a little bit of magic in the middle of the Financial District.
