Photographer's Note

Mosaics of Wilhelm Fountain

"The German Fountain (Turkish: Alman eşmesi German: Deutscher Brunnen) is a gazebo styled fountain in the northern end of old hippodrome (Sultanahmet Square), and across from the Mausoleum of Sultan Ahmed I. It was constructed to commemorate the second anniversary of German Emperor Wilhelm II's visit to Istanbul in 1898. It was built in Germany, then transported piece by piece and assembled in its current site in 1900. The neo-Byzantine style fountain's octagonal dome has eight marble columns, and dome's interior is covered with golden mosaics." (From Wikipedia)

Why the French title? That is because I was looking at a historic photochrom print of this fountain and it is labelled Fontaine Guillaume, which translates to "William (Wilhelm) Fountain".
