Photo caption from published version of GA92-9-52_001 and GA92-9-53_001: "WELL, WELL! - The top photo [GA92-9-52_001] showing Waterloo PUC and town officials was taking in 1919 when Waterloo tapped an artesian well on Caroline street. The well was capped and abandoned in 1934 when its hard, corrosive water disintegrated pipes. Lower photo [GA92-9-53_001] shows the same location where the gusher was struck during excavations at Waterloo Square. The water is seen seeping through snow at lower right. A portion of the old Seagram warehouse is shown at rear left."
