The Fountain of Victorious Finance is a fountain located in the banking district of the city.
Years before the Baudelaires were born, Kit and Lemony Snicket were assigned to go down the fountain (which was currently in construction) to tunnel underneath a museum to return an artifact to its rightful place.
Before the deaths of Bertrand and Beatrice, during an "unusually hot autumn," the Baudelaire family went to the banking district, where Beatrice had business to do. When Sunny became upset by the heat, Mr. Baudelaire puts her in the fountain which made her laugh with joy. This caused Violet, Klaus, Bertrand, and Beatrice (who had received a weather report and a naval map that had invisible ink) to join her in the fountain, with some incredulous looks from bankers who were passing by.
After the destruction of the Library of Records in Heimlich Hospital; Dr. Montgomery's House; and the archives of The Daily Punctilio in Paltryville, Kit Snicket waded into the fountain, looking for any newspapers that might have survived.
