A quick snapshot of my subconscious processing the things I walk past on my way to work in the morning:

Warehouse
Warehouse
Mail sorting office
Warehouse
Tank
Block of flats


hmmm_tea takes a few steps back again

Tank!


I knew there was one around here somewhere, but hadn't quite expected that I'd walked past it several times without noticing it.

That said, when I've walked along Mandela Way rather than Old Kent Road over the past few weeks, it's generally been late at night, dark and I've been going in the opposite direction where there's a bush hiding it, but that's still a pretty poor excuse as it is a big tank just parked in a fenced off area off the road.

The monopoly set we had at home when I was younger had playing pieces which were all various vehicles (rather than the standard top hat, etc) and included a tank, so I'm beginning to think I have actually fallen into a game of monopoly at some point.

*hmmm_tea attempts to advance to go as he'd quite like another £200*

EDIT: Having walked back the other way to go home for lunch, it appears it's not even that well hidden behind the bush. I'm just clearly that unobservant.

It's somewhat famous, seen court cases, been painted pink and has it's own wikipedia entry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandela_Way_T-34_Tank

Yes, I'd heard about it (and did in fact link to the wikipedia article above), but hadn't realised it was quite there

We used to have dogs, pigs, Games Workshop miniatures and deformed lego men as monopoly pieces.

I always assumed these had been the actual pieces that belonged to the monopoly set. They were all similar style pieces, so they obviously all came out of the same thing wherever they were from.

At first I thought you meant a water tank. Then I looked at the picture. Heh.
