18. Thorn Alpha 1

Spotted on Raleigh Street on the Mackworth Estate, Derby.

What I think happened: Part of the lantern's Opticell unit has broken away, possibly as a result of the adhesive used to hold the two sections together wearing out. Vandalism may of course be to blame, although the way that the Opticell has broken would suggest that the impact occurred from above. Amazingly, despite the damage, the lamp still worked at the time of writing.
