  Traffic Bollard - 800 years of London Mayor
by easyoar

In the City of London (this is a small 1 square mile area right in the middle of London) takes great pride in building various metal objects and then dating them and painting them in bright colours.

A good example of this are the traffic bollards, metal posts that stop cars driving where they shouldn't!

In this particular photo, the traffic bollard shown is dated 1989, which was also the year that the post of the Mayor of London had existed for 800 years, so these bollards have a special edition with the 800 years commemortion on them.

This photo was taken along the Old Bailey Road, and all the bollards along this road appear to have this design.
