Memorial drinking fountain commemorates William Almeida.
In 1924 , William Almeida, a bank teller, staggered out of the bank shortly after closing time bleeding from a bullet wound. He lurched after one of the robbers and bailed him up with a pistol forcing him to return inside. He handed the captive over to a bystander and then collapsed. Despite the efforts of two Hampton doctors and a Collins Street specialist he died.
