Holborn 1937...

What a dumpy almost thumb like bollard we've found near Great James Street WC1.

We can see on close inspection this cast iron bollard was made in 1937 and it appears in Holborn. It is zebra stripped but looking pretty good and well aged considering it is 73 years old.

The bollard itself has a square base which is inset into the kerbside which gives maximum pavement space to pedestrians. I must say love the window box in the background of picture plus the contrast of the drain whole cover dragging your attention away from this rather rare bollard.

Holborn 1937 just think this bollard survived the blitz...
