The traffic cone which, for the last 30+ years, has sat on top of the railings at the corner of St George's Road and Lambeth Road, by the underground depot, has finally been removed, as they're painting the railings.

I know I will not be alone in feeling a deep sense of personal loss. Should we have a vigil or something?

RIP Coney McConeface.

As soon as the paint is dry, I think we should remember this brave little cone with a simple wreath, untill we can persuade the council to honour it with a blue plaque. It may be too soon, but are there any young cones in the area that have the passion and commitment to carry on?

I'm intrigued. Any pics?

That cone was the highlight of my day. However it's the Snowflakes I feel for right now, how can they possibly study for their end of year exams and grieve properly over the loss of this magnificent cone which has been a familiar constant in their young lives while living amidst other distractions like politics, forthcoming election, French election and Jeremy Corbyn distract and worry their poor little souls. Petition on Change.org?

My nearly-seven-year-old son is already planning how to get a new cone up there. We need a strong and stable cone.

Tried searching for it on Google street view without success.

It's on street view 2008-2016. You need to position the view as if you were ouside the IWM looking almost directly across at the lampost with the St George's Road sign.
