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 firstname.lastname@example.org #thankyou...

Scarface...more like bollard-face...
Every now and then you turn a corner and depending on whether is is night or day you notice something rather interesting about London.
Well this morning did it for me, I dropped a fare off in Valance Road so I turned into Cheshire Street and upon a right turn into London's Brick Lane (I was heading for a salt beef bagel) I noticed this shutter and the angle which has a rather mean looking 'Tony Montana' played by Al Pacino in the 1983 (original 1932) movie/film 'Scarface' getting ready to wipe out the bollard on the pavement let alone the lines on the lane.
Next time I see a line of bollards I'll think of this picture of 'Tony Montana' giving it the large one with an automatic weapon and threatening the very existence of the bollard on Brick Lane, London E1.
