Wheatsheaf

Have tried to find out about this bollard disguised as a wheatsheaf at one entrance to the Swanfield Industrial Estate. It dates to the 1980's and you can just about see a few objects on the top that refer to the site's past uses. Love this kind of thing, but I don't know who designed this particular artwork.

PS I blipped a lovely enamelled numeral recently from the next block and just spotted this plaque on the same building that gives a bit of context - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Siege_of_Leith_plaque.JPG
