Hatton Garden, WC2

This gaslamp used to show the way down a dark alley to the Old Mitre in Ely Place, one of the most attractive pubs in London. It was still working with gas in the 1970s when some colleagues and I used to infest the the place. Their Welsh rarebit was particularly good, I recall.
Its condition is a disgrace and BoJo ought to do something about it right now.

That really does look very sorry for itself - such a shame when these more interesting bits of street furniture aren't looked after. Perhaps the Old Mitre might also do something for it...
