The lamp here has lost its blueness. Caroline's Miscellany explains that the practice of hanging blue lamps outside police stations started in 1861. Another blue lamp was saved from a demolished Islington police station and serves as a memorial.
Note the unusual bollard which can be seen in our picture.
