The replica of the famed Broad Street pump is located near the John Snow pub, seen in the background.  The pump is without a handle, symbolizing the removal action taken by local officials to halt a local cholera outbreak in 1854, at the request of Dr. John Snow.  For a second close-up view, click here.
