Welcome to Whitcomb Street SW1 which happens to be very close to London's Trafalgar Square and just to the side of the National Gallery
where I came across another large black wooden door/entrance with its brickwork protected by bollards with stone mini-bollards protecting them from damage from lorries/vans reversing/delivering goods to businesses.
The bollards are certainly older than some of the other designs we find in Westminster and these are certainly more sturdy/chunkier. The design is however standard and the colour matches the frame/colour of the gates/door to yard/entrance. I do though like the idea of the small mini-stone-bollards used to protect the bollards and finish off the kerb rather nicely.
With the Olympics upon us here in London it is only right that the #guestbollard
feature continues its international feel with a set of 'Rotterdam'
Moon Bollards photographed by the wonderful @artistmakers on the twitter (see bottom picture). I do love the angle of this particular photograph complete with weed/grass of a floral kind creeping out of the pavement right by the 'Moon' Bollards.

Bollards of London (and Rotterdam)...
Haha I have never realised before that the bollards from the last photograph really look like the Moon :) Very good observation skills :)ReplyDelete
