Pay and display machine in Albion Road car park
Off Albion Road is a small pay-and-display car park serving Garnett's garden centre where I pictured the old tungsten lamp post and Brills DIY centre next door. An alleyway forks just to the right of the photograph from Yew Tree Gardens off Canterbury Road, one prong of the fork leading into this car park and the other leading into the nearby park, also off Albion Road. The real reason I took this photo, however, was the floodlights that light the car park (about the only interesting things in this car park), which are rather shrouded in the tree. They are mounted on an old Stewart and Lloyd column from the 1950s, meaning an older lantern was probably installed here before the car park authority butchered the column and installed these horrible modern floodlights on it. That tree could really do with some pruning too, as the floodlights don't do a very good job at lighting the car park being so buried in it! View taken looking east-northeast.
