Seeing Elisa on a flag of Galveston would be nice.

"Rosenberg fountains, a series of decorative fountains Henry Rosenberg commissioned in 1898". Those fountains were more than art. They served a purpose. Rosenberg's will specified "not less than ten drinking fountains for man and beast." There was enough money to build 17 designed by J. Massey Rhind and crafted of light gray granite. Seven fountains remain according to internet sources. I remember the one in the park next to the original Rosenberg Elementary School. We went to the park when visiting my aunt who lived on Sealy nearby. I wrote a report about it in 3rd grade for Mrs. Workman in Danforth Elementary (TCISD). In it I thought it was "neat" they built a fountain for people and horses. I still think so.
