Hello.I was working in London years ago and i have a lot of pictures of this lampposts,because i repaired almost 400 of that lamposts.
I was working for a company called s.p.c and we stripped down the many,many coats of paint,after a century of life they have,and we repaired the broken pieces of each one of them and painted them again afterwards.
They put them there sometime in 1800 ( I think in 1850,not sure).
And at the begginin they worked with gas,repairing them we could see at the very top of each one the old pipes where the gas was fluiding throught to made them work.
I don't know how to add some pictures of them but if somebody is interested in them just connect with me and i'll be pleased sending you pistures of them before the paint was ripped down without any paint,and after been repaired and with the new coat of paint .
I have to say they are beautifull,i don't know who designed them but he was a reall artist,they have some details,wich you can't see from the ground,i took pictures of the top and of each detail of them.
Sorry about my way of writing,I'm not english..

Hi,It's me again.
I just found those pictures i talked about before,and i can tell you it deserve to be seen , i almost forgot how they were,the details,the shape of the fishes,the all structure is amazing.
Well amigos,you know,if you want to have some of those pictures i can send them to you if you need them.My e-mail adress is in the messagge before this one.
So many things came to my head remembering the time i spent repairing each of them,was a masterpiece.
And could have been repaired better if they wouldn't have pushed so much to finish the job,but you know,bosses want as much money as they can make as much more fast as posible.
