Whitechapel Road.

Whitechapel Road market is a multi-sensory overload. Kaleidoscopic sounds, smells and colours wrestle for attention. It's messy and full of great bargains (like the toy guitar with additional animal noises I once found). This place makes walking in straight lines an almost spiritual challenge. Maybe Tower Hamlets council think that all this can get a bit much, to the point where basic, nay universal pictography does not compute:

Not sure how great that picture comes out, but the words green man are actually written in green. What? This piece of signage straddles the horrifyingly condescending nature of bureaucrats and their unknowing comic genius quite uneasily.
