A Royal Albert Hall Bollard...

A Royal Albert Hall Bollard...How many times have I driven past or stopped and even ranked at the Royal Albert Hall and not noticed this rather dandy if not extravagant looking bollard.
You will notice that this bollard has attached to it a similar colour coded (black/gold) gate leading to a secure parking area to the side of the Kensington Gore entrance to the hall.
The bollard celebrates victorian splendor and is jet black in colour (in the main) with some rather fancy pattern work that happens to be painted gold. Its shape is cylindrical and the bollard tapers towards the top with a rather urn like finish. If we look closely we can see that the gate is attached to the bollard by a metal strap(s). I do like the near square nut piece on the side of the bollard two thirds up the column.
Sometimes bollards are actually staring at you and you don't even notice the most colourful or even orante of them.
