Rainbow pool ca. 1924

The Rainbow Pool was a reflecting pool located on the National Mall in Washington D.C., USA. It was between the much larger Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool (to the west), and 17th Street NW (to the east). It was replaced in 2001 by the National World War II Memorial, which also features a smaller reflecting pool located in roughly the same spot.[1]
