Thorne, who was then Fontaine_2the director of the Temiscaming mill.  Imported from Italy, these bronze collection works of art graced the courtyard of an old aristocratic Roman family.  These are the work of a Toscan artist.  The well is decorated with beautiful dancing figures.  It is erected on a florentine marble base.  The fountain is surmounted by a statue of Neptune and is surrounded by mythological figures.

C.B Thorne also offered a bronze statue of David which is located in front of the Town Hall, a marble statue named «Spring» located inside the Town hall and a painting representing the Holy Family located at St. Theresa’s Church.
