Street Furniture

Posted 22/08/2023 - 14:20 Link
Way back in the early 1980s I attended an Open University Summer School at Westfield College. One afternoon we went out on a field trip around Hampstead where we were shown various places associated with the course that I was on. One thing stuck in my mind. Bollards! Not any old bollards but army surplus cannon from the Napoleonic Wars which had been repurposed as cast iron bollards and buried along the kerb edge muzzle down. You could even make out the part of the gun where the slow fuse would have been applied.

Since that Summer School I have taken a great interest in street furniture, which was why I selected this subject for the August competition. Sadly I seem to be alone in interest of the subject - the phrase 'gone down like a lead balloon,' seems appropriate. I am beginning to ponder what happens if, come 31 August, there are no entries. On the other hand someone might take pity on me!!!

There will be at least two entries! Sue and myself will be sorting our entries for this over the next couple of days, and hopefully so will lots of other members!
Best regards, John
