Hobson's?

Market Hill in Cambridge used to contain the end of Hobson's Conduit, it seems.  That was Hobson of "Hobson's Choice" – the choice being of any donkey you liked (or was it horses?) but the choice was a poor one as each was as bad as the other.  You can still see the name Hobson on a grating in the centre of Market Hill, but this fountain is not the original, which was apparently moved to another location in Cambridge some time ago.

The extras are of a tea and coffee stall, and of the Senate House on King's Parade, looking past King's College.
