London Warnings and Dangers: 667 reviews and 459 photos
It is an almost unbelieveable fact that you can be fined Five Thousand pounds or spend six months in jail, for placing advertising in an telephone box.
Despite this threat some 13 Million "Tart cards" are placed in London's phone boxes annually.
The history of them in fact goes back to Music hall days, when 'Ladies of the night' would leave little envelopes for likely punters.
In the old days discreet messages would appear in newsagents advertising "Swedish lessons" or "Large Chest for sale", but gradually the Tart Card ended up in the capitals Phone boxes.
Some are still discreet with phrases like "Model available" but most are much more on the risque side with various salacious images downloaded from the net.
So if your easily offended,or have kids who you don't wish to see such images then be warned.
