Bringing water to the towns

Bringing water to the towns. Growing towns demanded a proper water supply; in 1613, a new river was created to bring water to London, piped into the city in hollowed-out tree trunks to fountains and into houses by expensive lead pipes. Original artwork from Treasure no. 411 (5 December 1970).
