Rather Large Bollard or a Dalek ?
Well you could be forgiven for thinking this is a Dalek for it is a rather large looking bollard sitting right by the traffic island which houses a underground public toilet. In fact on closer inspection this isn't a Dalek, it is an ornate Victorian cover for a ventilation shaft probably from the toilet beneath. Looking at the head of this "bollard" it could easily become a giant juicer ?
I do like the very ornate railing behind and this for me is what confirms that this is after all a vent shaft with a very victorian bollard shaped vent shaft. The actual panels on each side of this object are in fact patterned grills which allow the free flow of air.
If anybody knows better please do leave me a message in the comments section.
