You are correct, of course, Mick.
Plastic hadn't been invented when that post was painted Grin
And as this is Shadow Saturday, I will defend you by stating that this post is but a shadow of its former self.

Joking apart (well, one of us was probably joking) I have a photo somewhere of a French fire hydrant that looks remarkably similar. I mean, it's red!


P.S.: Please forgive all unusual spellings, comments etc. My keyboard will not behave itself.

Like the above comments, Mick, some really giving me a chuckle.
No mistaking the red this time, covering up the yellow but not tooooooo successfully.

So, went to see how Big Agie was doing, only to find she had slipped free from her ball & chain. Me thinks you need to purchase a stronger lock... Looks like she had a good chew of your bollard before leaving.
