|East Dulwich Bollards SE22...|
Well I've taken a little time off pushing a taxi-cab around London and I came across these twisted/patterned bollards of East Dulwich and Vauxhall. Both are very different and they certainly don't fit the 'cannon' type design we are used to seeing in the more central conservative (in taste/politics) borough's.
Let's take a close look at the East Dulwich bollards (pictured above/immediately below) they are made of a metal and twisted. They remind me of the rope used by tug boats. With a smooth rounded top, painted black and a narrow pale pink twisting line coupled with the odd dot for good measure these bollards certainly liven up the edge of the pavement/kerb and given the local parade of shops an identity beyond their own front doors.

We now move swiftly towards Vauxhall and these wonderful plastic/composite material bollards that are very different in look and shape. They certainly liven up an area outside a block of flats called 'Bland House'. Well the flats look fine and some of the bollards have become part of the railings (pictured above) with majority placed/planted by the pavement/kerb (pictured below).
What makes these bollards unique is the material and shape. what makes me link them with the East Dulwich bollards happens to be the twisted pattern that appears on sides of these Vauxhall bollards.
