Prime Minister - dismount!
Two odd kerb stones for the prime minister's horse dismount.
Here, outside The Athenaeum Club there are some stone blocks on the pavement placed there in 1830 at the request of the Prime Minister at the time, The Duke of Wellington, to assist in mounting his horse.
The Dublin born Iron Duke, who defeated Napoleon at Waterloo in June 1815, was a regular visitor and member of the club.
We would love to see the current prime minister do this...
