Stockport Police Blue Lamp

A blue lamp hangs outside Stockport Police HQ on Edward Street. Such lamps have been hung outside police stations since 1861.

A contribution to Blue Monday.


  1. Hi Gerald,

    You've found some interesting blue today.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  2. They always remind me of 'Dixon of Dock Green', the television series which was inspired by the early 1950s film 'The Blue Lamp', although the policeman George Dixon (played by Jack Warner in both the film and TV series) was shot dead in the film by the character played by Dirk Bogarde.

  3. Very creative blue shots for HBM ~ carol, xo

  4. You did very well with your unique blue finds.
