I was waiting on a friend in Shirlington the other day when I saw this contraption. Anybody have an idea what it is? It is rather reminiscent of things I remember from history class, like stocks and pillories. In fact, the first thing I thought when I saw it was a photo I recalled from the Boxer Rebellion. No joke.
Anyway, hopefully this is some sort of useful device under construction, and not a form of public humiliation for lawbreakers, although honestly I don’t think that would be so bad. Any thoughts?
It is the bottom of a sign that is possibly having maintenance done offsite. And the cones are there to prevent anyone from running into it.
I work in Shirlington, it is a Light Pole that people keep running over. Seriously. I’ve seen it happen numerous times from my office.
