|Jacob Street bollard...|
The body of this body is cylindrical with a flared top (could be confused has a muzzle) and a half cannon ball top finish. The bollard looks older than what I believe it to be due to the erosion of layers of paint along with the rusting parts of the metal.
I'm sure many of you have heard or seen some of the pictures featuring art work on bollards (boll-art) well thanks to Ross Corben we have now found fabric based 'boll-art' featured on this rather interesting blog by a journalist based in Beirut, http://www.sietske-in-beiroet.blogspot.co.uk Looks like a rather interesting blog/site and the fabric covered bollards look pretty cool indeed.
|A Fort William bollard...|
The #guestbollard featured on this post was photographed/provided by @obotheclown on the twitter. He has found a most unusual bollard in Fort William, Scotland. If we ignore the body/base of the bollard and concentrate on the pentagonal shaped top/head and note the symbols/signs we can see on each face/side of the bollard top.
If you look at the photograph (above) you see a star and wavy lines (water) on two of the faces. If we look (below) we see a face of the sun, two axes and a moon (quartered). The axes interested me and it appears they form part of the crest for 'Lochaber District Council' which became part of the Highlands Regional Council in 1996.
