|George the 4th Bollard...|
York Gate Regents Park is a wonderful entrance to one of London's Royal Parks and right at the junction of the gate and the Marylebone Road you'll across this beautiful 'George the 4th' bollard that is in immaculate condition and has certainly aged rather well due to many coats of paint and a well maintained crest/crown coupled the the roman numerals 'IV' denoting the 4th and the letters 'GR' denoting George Rex.
|A contemporary look...|
If we look at the picture on our left we see the central reservation of York Gate looking towards York Bridge and the junction with the Outer Circle of the park. The bollards are very simple cylindrical in shape and above average height for a bollard with two gold painted bands with a half ball nipple top finished painted in gold. The main body of the bollard is painted a gloss black colour and certainly kept clean and tidy looking.
If we now look at the picture below we see the top of the bollard with an above elevation picture and may I say or even suggest could this be the first piece of 'bollart'
in London and displayed on this blog/site ? Look closely at the picture and you'll see the curved John Nash designed buildings and myself reaching out with slightly stretched (bent) arm with camera taking this very above elevation photograph. Yes 'bollart'
From Regent's Park to Beckenham which is now part of Greater London and a big thank you to @gnorthfield on the @twitter and these two fantastic photographs of our #guestbollard
found by the street name 'King William IV Gardens'. The bollard is made of iron and carries the name of the area 'Beckenham' vertically and topped/bottomed with a maltese cross.
