    Quite funny this thread, because I took a few pictures down Lambeth walk yesterday - noticing that the rather abandon shops had one with no dialing code -so that would be the old 01, one with 071 and one with 0171.

    An 01 picture to follow when I get round to transferring it out of the mobile phone. could have had another one about 100 yards away, but it's on the sign in the window of a clock / watch repairers (not visible when they pull the shutter down at night), and they might have got nervous and called the law if i'd gone and photographed it...

    I guess a twist to this would be to try and get a sequence of adjacent shops, with 01, 081 (or 071 if you like), 0181 (ditto) and 020 numbers on display. And an 0208 in the same parade, just to annoy the pedants. :p

    That would be a glorious thing to see. We must live in hope...

    cheers :)

    Oh no. I didn't save the photos, and now they're gone. Any chance you could post them up again? Sorry to be a pain...

    There's a cake shop on Camberwell road, on a little parade of shops by the Castle estate with an 01 number.

    Can't find a decent picture online though

    sorry - dropped a clanger uploading the first one to tinypic, and somehow uploaded the same picture three times. i deleted what i thought were the two i had not linked here. and i obviously managed to bugger that up as well. :facepalm:

    but i think you have got the better of the two, anyway.

    and collected another one this week - [​IMG]

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    it's a sign of longevity keeping the 01 number, it says, proudly, that this business has been here for over 20 years :)

    driving down the Lea bridge road,Leyton spotted this one, mrs21 took a quick picture whilst we were stuck in traffic, a little bemused that I wanted a picture of a dull shop - it's important, it's for someone on the internets !

    now do these count? the upper window frame has two shields with the number without the 01

    actually spotted 3 more! on the way down Lea bridge road, all without the 01,could go back and bag them at some point

    Good work that man. And yup, they count, although I'll caegorise the photo as an "implied" 01.

    It's a wicked little shop- proper old school dusty cavern of stuff but the staff always seem to know where everything is :cool: luckily I've never used the other shop...

    Regret to report that The Flower Shoppe, Burnt Ash Hill, Lee SE12 - taken 27.2.10 (see earlier post) has since then had a new facia put on. don't know if this embarrassed them into it.....

    and wtf at previous post now having photos of two frocks as well as shop front. Think Tinypic have done something daft. I've asked the mods to do something about it.

    toblerone3 Grrrrr

    The lettering and shop window of this funeral parlour in Marchmont Street is brand new so leaving the 01 code is clearly deliberately retro. Its catching on !!

    Corax Read my blog you bastards.

    Why is your 01 blog interesting? It shouldn't be interesting.

    But it is. :)

    I just don't understand why...

    Cheers, will add this sometime soon :)
    I really don't know, but it's interesting enough that I keep updating it. Just added John Seaward funeral directors, that Boycey kindly posted to this thread a while ago:

    http://01forlondon.wordpress.com

    Two funeral directors... I suppose they're businesses that rarely lack for trade.
