Conway Street, Fitzrovia...W1.

If you happen to be in "Fitzrovia" near the BT tower you may come across Conway Street with the junction of Maple Street. Here you will find a rather peculiar bollard for it is rather old around 1850's so mid 19th century with a pointed head/top.

The bollard is jet gloss black in colour and is planted well and truly into the kerbside. Three ribbed/rings adorn the exterior plus it has some writing/date which I couldn't make out due to excessive paint jobs. The base of the top has eight sides and each panel points inwards and upwards to create the pointed top which stops people placing objects on/upon the bollard.
