|Queen Square WC1 former water pump/now lamp surrounded by bollards...|
We are at the southern end of Queen Square WC1 where I found an old water pump which just happens to be used has a lamp. At the bottom of Bedford Row we have the very same water pump/lamp surrounded by different shaped bollards.
If we take a look at the picture (below) we see two stone bollards, one little and the other large in comparison. With the taller larger bollard having a square base that rises vertically and morphs into a smooth/worn weather beaten looking piece of stone that is topped off with a metal stud/nipple shaped top.
|Little and Large bollards...|
If we take a close look at the picture (top) we can see a bollard on the right hand side of the picture that looks a little gothic. This type design is found in a few places around London from Shoreditch, Strand and Kentish Town. We will take a closer look shortly.
