The cast iron drinking fountain commemorates John Miller who was Unley`s Town clerk from 1879 to 1903.

The Unley Corporation on Monday evening decided to erect a drinking fountain on Unley Road opposite to the town hall, and Mr. J. Martin, of Southwark, was commissioned to execute the work, at a cost not to exceed £30. The fountain, which will stand as a memorial to the late town clerk, Mr. John Miller, will consist of an ornamental cast iron central design, surmounted by an elaborate canopy set on four round pillars.
The Register (Adelaide), 25 October 1904.
