An old Victorian-style lamp post in a front garden (yet again!)
What is it with Birchingtonians and having old lamp posts in their front gardens? Yet another house, this time on the driveway featured in TR2969 : Street light not lighting a street, has a Victorian lamp post in its front garden, but of a different kind. This one looks very similar to the modern replicas of such a design seen on many roads today, but I think this one probably originally ran a tungsten or GLS lamp instead of a modern one. I've posted onto a streetlight enthusiast's website to get it identified, and it is thought it was made by a company called Falks Beaufort.
