|A near perfect City of London bollard...|
Get to America Square and cross over the road to Vine Street EC3 in the City of London and you'll find this shorter even stumpy looking City or Corporation of London bollard.
The top is domed but reminds me of an orange squeezer. We then come to a red painted octagonal curved ridge/lip that then tapers to a white painted area with red painted stars upon. A smaller curved red ridge/lip leads us to the shorter stumpy/sturdy body which has placed upon the front the emblem/coat of arms of the Corporation of London I must say I am still amazed at the different types (derivatives) of bollards one can find within the Square Mile.
If we look at the bottom picture we can see the date 1878 clearly beneath the emblem/coat of arms.
