There’s some really odd stuff sitting on the top of London’s bus stops.
When you get the bus as much as I do, you start to wonder who puts them there.
As far as prerequisites go, they’d have to be tall, carry a step ladder around, or have a mate who doesn’t mind having someone stand on their shoulders while they hoist a lampshade onto the roof. In the dark.
Outside Beyond Retro in Dalston there used to be a typewriter on the bus shelter. At another one on Kingsland Road, a pair of DM style boots. All over east London into the city, you’ll find neon potatoes with cotton buds sticking out of them, placed there for the purposes of art and, I’m guessing, the entertainment of commuters on the top deck of the 243.
And on Essex Road yesterday?
Luckily for you I’m not going to start a new blog called “Weird Stuff on Top of Bus Stops” because that would be boring and a pretty niche way to spend an evening.
But if you choose to set up that blog, you won’t be short of stuff to put on it.
Also, credit me, because you heard it here first.
