SOME LONDON LAMP-POSTS. The former parish of St. Giles, now the Borough of Holborn, London, has always affected a special kind of lamp-post, like Done other; and this pecularity extends to tl:« lamp-glass, not pieced together in a frame, as the others are, but blown in one piece, and in something of a bulb-shape. The City of London posts are rather hand- some, and they all bear the helmet cte-t-ed with a wing, which is the City's badge, togteher with the pious old motto, "Domine dirige nos." In the same connection it may be noticed that the Paddington lamp-posts all used to bear on top the badge of a mur-al crown and two crossed swords, but these have all been removed, whether for economy's sake or any other reason does not appear. But, after all the London improve- ments of late years, it can still be said that the handsomest lamp-standards are those erected in 1886 at Charing-cross and in Northumberland-avenue, by the late de- spised and discredited Metropolitan. Board of Works. They were executed in bronze by the old Coalbrookdale Company.
