    UrbaneFox None, at present

    There's an 01 antiques shop in Kensington Church Street that is either near-bankrupt and about to be taken over by a cupcake chain, or outraged at the idea that anyone might even THINK they are in 0208.

    There's no dialling code "0208". You cannot dial a seven digit number to another London landline.

    Kensington Church Street is 020 7 territory anyway.

    And Jazzz stop being a pedant.

    If we're being pedantic, 020 7 can be anywhere in London now :)

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

    Bit late but my contribution, south London . . . . disused but the 01 is still there. Saw another from a train yesterday as well.

    While not gauranteed to work I do it to lessen the likelihood of my photos being used elsewhere though if people want to 'steal' images they seem to pay little attention as to whether a photo is watermarked is not.

    Crofton Park: Paine & Hunter Opticians, 384 Brockley Road if you want to google it has an 01 number. I'll take a picture of it next time I'm passing.

    I saw this the other day. I don't know how many hand dryers there are with the old code still on but thought it was pretty threadworthy

    I really must get mum-tat's old phone sorted out so it will work with these new fangled sockets.

    It's similar, but older (possibly a 706 not a 746) - it has the letters round the edge, and the 01-857 number is stuck on a paper label, the 'Kipling' exchange label is underneath...

    I do have a 706 as my mobile phone ringtone...

    Well knock me down with a feather. Hello hiccup, this is the Hex that's sent you a load of photos. It's about time I sent you some more, they've been piling up again....

    I found this today: 6 Commercial Street, E1: 01 247 5769.

    I took the photo in 2009, but Streetview today shows the same signage.

    Getting two obsolete dialling codes on one building is quite an achievement!
