ANOTHER QUITE INTERESTING THING AROUND BOROUGH MARKET
Actually, this is the same quite interesting thing that we mentioned before.
You know how once you notice something, you keep seeing other examples? We saw that someone's put a notice on the signpost around the height you might expect someone to see it.
Nowadays 'Bankside' (as parts of Borough are now called) is a popular tourist destination. We wondered if these signposts are designed for those Masai tribespeople who jump up very high? Not that we've seen many of them around, to be fair.
Then we wondered if they are for people flying into Heathrow. As they prepared for landing, are they told on your right hand side you'll see the Tate, Shakespeare's Globe and the Royal Festival Hall, while on the left is London Bridge, the Southwark Information Centre and Borough Market?
Maybe that is the thinking behind Southwark Council's Extraordinarily Tall Signposts.
Seen from ground level, a passer-by is blissfully unaware of the relative positions of the Tate and the Southwark Information Centre.
The litter bin on the left is branded 'Better Bankside'.
Better at litter bins, maybe. At least you can put litter in them. Could the signposts you can't see do with a re-think?
