On a short walk in my neighborhood this morning, I must have passed hundreds of poles: Light poles, utility poles, sign poles.
They do their jobs of holding up stuff but I noticed that they can do a lot more.
Here in just a few blocks, some upgrades:
This Stop sign pole is across from a yarn store.
Light pole as soap box.
This memorial pole shows up on my corner every year around this time.
It is for young Emily Dunn, hit by a bus at this intersection.
I’ve posted about it before: ad hoc monuments
These pole dancers are in a series of guerrilla pieces in the neighborhood. Bravo, somebody!
I love the whimsy in everyday city life. Or perhaps it is the poles that love:
thanks. nice work as usual mr. p.
Also, you might note, they can be put to use indoors for more than holding up a building….
The true beauty of living in a great city and not the boring suburbs…
