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...

The 92nd Post...
On the borders of the City of London you'll come across an area called Whitechapel infamous for the Victorian murderer called "Jack the Ripper".
The area also has a very rich diverse cultural mix with many coucil estates, new developments and old Victorian/Edwardian houses. Along with this mix we come across the many different designs of bollards and here we can see a very old looking black and white zebra stripped "cannon" shaped bollard with a rather large protrusion at the base near the kerbside.
On closer inspection we have a label/badge attached just above the protrusion or can I call it a hump? What is funny though with this picture is the cluster of three modern bollards in the background seemingly looking on in awe of the much grander/older piece of history/street furniture.
