Lambeth Road SE1...

At the junction of Lambeth Road and Hercules Road SE1 we have a railway bridge with a large central supporting column. Directly in front of the brick built support we find a beautiful Victorian Lamp post flanked by two dirty rather dandy ornate bollards of a similar but differing design.

Both these bollards have that 'orange squeeze' top and beneath the pollution/dust we can see the black and white zebra striped paint on the whole of the body of the bollards.

All three pieces of street furniture demonstrate a level of workmanship and craft that we rarely see in a modern minimalist world obsessed with glass and at times blandness.

Bollards of London...
