If you look around, it's amazing how many shop signboards you can see which still sport the old '01' London dialling code. '01' for London was introduced from 1959 and by the mid-sixties had replaced the old 'TER' style letter-based area codes. 01 was itself replaced in 1990 by 071 or, for less central districts, 081.
I've blogged on this once or twice before - but have since come across two businesses nearby which stll seem caught in a timewarp: one is the excellent electrics shop on Junction Road, and the other the dry cleaners on Chetwynd Road. There must be many more - keep your eyes skinned!
