What Have We Here Then...?

This must be one of the most garish coloured bollards I've ever seen and I'm still not sure why the bollards of Leadenhall Market are this peculiar colour.

They almost appear pink with the standard red areas but silver stars just under top red ring. The City of London or should I say the Corporation of London crest is still present on the bollard but his time facing in the direction of the kerb and not looking out towards the road.

I've also noted that this bollard is planted firmly into the kerb stone and not planted upon the actual pavement. This market dates back to the 13th century and many a tradesman as made his/her fortune working the streets of this city called London...
