Photo A, I dont think the Fountain was badly corroded.It looked bad because of numerous coats of paint slapped on it over a 100 yrs. Cast Iron is brilliant for resisting corrosion. Down the pit were 100 yr old pumps in wet conditions made from Cast Iron. They were rusty looking but that was just surface rust.
In photo B it look like someone slid a crowbar under the bottom to test how well it's secured and snapped a piece off.
