Old Electricity Pole & Utility box, Gascoigne Road [????-c.2011]

Date Place demolished: 
c.2011-10-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

Maybe it's the recent talk about old inspection covers, but I noticed this old electricity pole (at least I think that's what it was) and cast iron box on the corner of Gascgoigne Road and Chi Wo Street.

At the base of the pole is the lettering:

Bullers Limited London

Code Word Artro

Here's a page about Bullers, which shows they were manufacturers of electrical insulators and other electrical distribution equipment.
