Forks of the Thames River, London, Ontario - March of 2013, just after sunset. Fountain at the Forks The Walter J. Blackburn Memorial Fountain at the Forks of the Thames in downtown London was constructed in 2008. In 2013, London hosted the World Figure Skating Championships, emblazoning itself in light shows for the occasion. This photo was taken March 9, 2013, as the city prepared for the event. It is recorded that Lieut. Gov. Simcoe stood at this same place on March 2, 1793; 220 years and one week earlier; it’s unlikely he could imagine his “New London” looking like this.
