Well can you believe it a bollard that commemorates the 800th anniversary of the position of the Lord Mayor of the City of London.
You can find this particular type on Salisbury Square EC4 just of Fleet Street. I must say what detail and a fantastic paint job of the coat of arms.
It must be said that the most dandy and ornate of all London's bollards are to be found with the boundaries of the square mile...
Welcome to bollards of London (incorporating bollards of Britain), a site dedicated to those rather odd looking pavement objects you find in the most interesting of places. Bollards have a history richer than most objects placed upon the pavement and we can easily find some from the earlier part of the 19th Century. Welcome once again to bollards of London and please do follow/contact me on the twitter @BollardsEngland or via gmail firstname.lastname@example.org #thankyou...

In addition to the most ornate bollards the square mile also seems to host the most diverse styles.ReplyDelete
Ha! Great idea for a blog. I saw a set of bollards in Amsterdam this weekend wearing made-to-measure jeans (outside a demin shop) - wish I'd taken a photo of them now!ReplyDelete
Evelyn, the square mile or corparation seem to take great pride in planting bollards everywhere...ReplyDelete
