Currently painted a rather lurid gold, as you can see. I know there is another structure cast in the same pattern elsewhere in the city, but I can't remember for the life of me where now. That makes three of these gorgous awnings. Until recently the Dalmiur Park one featured a large, Minervian Owl as a centerpiece under the cupola, but it got nicked, last summer I think.

Snapped this at the traffic lights this morning - what is it? For why? And, more importantly, how long til some neds pinch it and roll it home?

For every Rouge One, there's a hundred kiddie taggers who perceive the lax attitude as an invitation to move onto, for example, defacing the Stewart Memorial Fountain. The Parks department could do with reading about Broken Window theory:
If the fountain was maintained, regularly switched on (as it has been on a few occasions over the past 2 summers - it's in fully working order) it would be seen as an asset, rather than a totem of decay, and the vandals might even think twice before defacing it again.
