Cast-iron fountain commemorates Dinny O’Hearn, an Irish-Australian literary critic and man of letters who had a long association with the nearby University of Melbourne.

O’Hearn and much of Melbourne’s literary establishment of his generation has also enjoyed a long association with Jimmy Watson’s, the wine bar outside of which the fountain is sited. O’Hearn died in 1993, at the age of 56.
