I have several times talked about the Wallace fountains (May 10 and May 12), offering free fresh water to whoever is thirsty. The Wallace fountains are some 135 years old. Here is another much older fountain, situated rue St.Honoré (the oldest street going through the whole central part of Paris). It’s called ”la Fontaine de la Croix du Trahoir” (linked to the name of this part of the street in ancient times). It was originally put there by François I in 1529, but was transformed during the reign of Louis XVI in 1775. You can still drink the water (I did).
