Image Description: Given a grade 2 listing on the 8th October 1981, this ornate Victorian cast iron column in Southampton until a year or so ago featured its original carbon arc lantern with opalescent, slightly teardropped bowl. Unsurprisingly, the carbon arc lantern hasn't operated for years and most likely decades, but sadly the bowl has now gone. Now there has been sacrilege, with the mounting of a post-top sphere to this column.

Yes, this sphere looks completely out of sorts with the rest of the column, this is the first time I have seen such a lamp given this kind of treatment, certainly not pretty at best.
