Lamp Posts (1)
Call me tragic. I’ve started realising just how fab our lamp posts are. Well – some of them, anyway. The ones that come from another time, when they weren’t just there to perform an illuminatory function, but to be decorative as well. I was wandering through the ORNC yesterday and it suddenly hit me, the sheer variety of the things. Some stand sentinel at entrances, others are simple columns with traditional Victorian-looking lanterns on top. Presumably most of them used to be gas lamps.
