I dropped a fare off the other evening in Great James Street, Bloomsbury, WC1 only to notice a cast iron temporary bollard with a warning sign on the paved over part of this rather beautiful street.
The warning sign is to dog owners and informs them of a possible fine if they allow their dogs to foul the footpath/pavement. What I do (excuse the pun) find funny is the fact that dogs have a tendency to piddle up any vertical column they come across.
So yet again London councils dish up a variety of bollards that even I thought never existed.
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 email@example.com #thankyou...
