Danger 230 Volts...
We are at the Royal Exchange in the heart of the City of London upon the paved area where many city workers will enjoy a tea/coffee and even a cigarette if this bollard picture is anything to go by.
If we take a close look we can see this object that looks very much like a bollard carries a smaller badge/crest/emblem of the city on its front but also happens to have a warning sticker placed on the front removable plate that informs us all that 230 Volts just happen to pass within this bollard like object supplying power to the beautiful lamp posts that happen to border the paved area of the Royal Exchange.
Can I say a big thank you to @AboutLondon on the twitter for taking this amazing photograph and also pointing out to me and hopefully you that placing cigarette butts in a gap of a bollard/post that happens to carry electricity is pretty foolish and could give one or two smokers a shock at the Royal Exchange if they're not to careful in the future.
So the #guestbollard today is the main bollard because it is so rare to find an object that demonstrates how people noticed the gap to place a butt, but failed to take note or read the warning sign.
Bollards of London (it's electrifying)...
