    You need to venture to Zone 6!

    Where else are you going to get a running business that still has an area code and four digits on their frontage?

    An honourable mention to the Arosfa Hotel in Gower Street.

    It still displays its pre-01 number outside, and seems proud of it (this photo from their own web site)

    [​IMG]

    It does have a brass plate next to the door, which includes an 0171 number...

    Cheers for these. Have been a bit slack on the blogging front, cos work have blocked Flickr, but will get these added soon.

    I have noticed a few on Lea Bridge Road - Leyton end - but I'm always driving when I see them so haven't yet been able to take any pictures

    Anyone seen any more "pre-01" signs? Those must be very old by now.

    I thought about this thread a couple of weeks ago when I was in the Hoxton Station area.
    There is a Victorian building on the corner of Pearson Street with an old Shoreditch SHO..... number painted on the side.

    Balham If it ain't in London then, well, it just ain't.

    Alas I have nothing to contribute but have thoroughly enjoyed the photos with old numbers (yes, things are a bit quiet here at the moment [​IMG]) .

    Found out the 01 code came about in 1959!

    Found this relating to the pre 1959 system (with names); Telephone areas.
