Hans Town Bollard

What we know about this image :

Beside what was Cox's Coal Office and is now a derelict shop next to the Central Stores building is this English Heritage  listed bollard. Currently is is not noticeable as it is painted black. There is an almost identicall bollard in Chelsea saying Hans Town 1819 and this is where Hans Town actually is. The significance of this one in Hartlepool which has much cruder lettering, is being researched !
