Country Club Plaza
TitleCountry Club Plaza
DescriptionStreet level view of the Cricket West clothing store located at 308 W. 47th Street at the northwest corner of 47th and Wornall in the Country Club Plaza. Also in view is the Neptune Fountain purchased in 1952 by the J. C. Nichols Company.
NotesAccording to information found in the department's vertical file, the Neptune fountain shows Neptune (Poseidon) and his three attributes: the trident or 3-pronged spear, the dolphin, and the horses. Neptune, holding his trident, is rising from the sea in his chariot drawn by three seahorses while two dolphins leap playfully between the horses.
