A DAY OUT (THE PIGS)
Location: Rundle Mall at the junction of Stephens Place
Sculptor: Marguerite Derricourt
Medium: Bronze

These four bronze pigs are depicted in lively poses as if they were walking the street, greeting shoppers, and snuffling out a bargain.

They were commissioned by the Adelaide City Council as part of the final phase of the upgrade of Rundle Mall.

The group sculpture was unveiled by Former Lord Mayor (Dr Jane Lomax-Smith) on 3 July 1999. Two of the Pigs are pictured above. A competition to name the Pigs was recently held with the winning entries being:

Truffles (The standing pig), Horatio (The sitting pig), Oliver (The pig at the bin) and Augusta (The trotting pig).

RUNDLE MALL FOUNTAIN
Two fountains were originally erected in front of the Jubilee Exhibition Building, formerly at North Terrace opposite Pulteney Street, they were handed over by the South Australian Government to the City Council in 1908, one to be erected in North Adelaide and the other in South Adelaide. These fountains were constructed in the late Victorian era and are examples of the domestic fountains of the period.
The larger of the two is in Creswell Gardens and the smaller was originally moved from Osmond Gardens to Rundle Mall, at the junction of Gawler Place and Rundle Mall. It was subsequently moved further down the mall, and is now adjacent to the entrance to the Adelaide Arcade. The water effect of this fountain consists solely of the spray from the top of the fountain overflowing to the central bowl, finally dropping into the ground level basin.
