    No it’s not the same object. Please resubmit a new portal.


    look at the top of your object screen.



    it is also a mass produced object for publicity.

    Your article is not relevant,

    This kind of column is ONLY for the city of Paris. The one's mentionned in your articles are just pale copies.


    Also as a gentle reminder this portal is valid for NIantic. https://community.ingress.com/en/discussion/comment/21475#Comment_21475


    Here is an article about the history of this kind of column : https://frenchmoments.eu/morris-column-paris/

    Here another one https://www.jcdecaux.com/blog/morris-column-historical-and-mythical-advertising-support.

    JC Decaux bought La Société Fermière des Colonnes Morris in 1986 and continue the legacy of the printer Gabriel Morris who start building them in 1868. As I mentionned in a previous post, theses columns are made exclusively to advertise cultural shows (plays, concerts theatre, operas etc), If a wood panel with information about a community is legit how this can not be?

    You can not compare it to a bin, bench or a random billboard. It's a piece of Parisian history .

    As you wrote, the one on the oxilium picture is a new 2019 pale copy.


    The real, historical one, doesn’t exist any more...


    i understand also that you compare them to bin in your post.

    So what is your argument here?

    So picture may differ a bit from the current column but what's mean is the functionality and location not the design in this case.

    Too bad Google + does not work anymore but there were a similar case where a rail station clock was ongoing refurbishement and happen to be deleted. I manage to get the portal back, but you know what the clock is a little bit different from the old one so what count is the functionality. A new picture can always be added anyway.

    The column is not mass produced because it is limited to Paris with specific design and requirements.

    Apparently you do not understand the bin reference, if a bin is legit then this column is ultra legit. A bin is by far more produced than this column. A bin has even less history than a Morris column. A bin does not advertise cultural event to the local community.

    You can compare a column with London's red phone boxes, a few left but still are iconics. Same case here.

    In addition it's not a copy as the current company that made them has inherit the original one who had made since 1868 with all patents and original design.
