Some U.S. looking beacons in Bermuda.

Looks like they also tried to copy Clearwater Beach in Florida.

Some weird PEEK traffic light heads.

An old sign, AFAIK this is one of the oldest intersections with Mellor heads, although it claims these are 50 years old (yet Mellor heads didn't start popping up until the 1970's.)

Kind of odd seeing a building constructed entirely out of non-painted bricks. (Yes, before you ask me that is how construction works, its just odd not to see cladding or other material over it.

Sadly, this building burned down in 2011.

Nor those sales posted in those windows.

In fact, looking at images in the aftermath, its quite ironic that the bricks themselves aren't covered in soot or whatnot, or collapsed.

Not often you see a Mellor with retrofitted LEDS.

...This pole contains no signal.

Not often you see a road named after the Tomb Raider!

Let's play the guessing game!

What TV show was filmed in this building?

I'd be surprised if anyone here other than you knew the answer to that.
