Searching For Lodnon's Best Typos

Admit it, we all enjoy sniggering at other people's trivial errors. Hence, we're on the lookout for London's most amusing misspelled signs, and those that have lost letters with unfortunate results. If you've spotted a comedy sign, either leave a comment with a link or email us at hello@londonist.com and we'll share the best.

To get things started, here are 14 gems from the Londonist Flickr pool.
