But in the course of this trip to London, I came across signs which didn’t make sense to me at all.
What do you make of these?
The first sign made me smile, as it was at the entrance of Harrod’s. I suppose that it means that people wearing minimal clothing won’t be admitted, but the first idea that comes to mind is that people in bathing suits are not welcome.
The second sign also at Harrod’s, just doesn’t make sense to me. It doesn’t forbid anything, but I can’t figure out what it allows. Carrying a case is allowed? Sounds silly.
The last sign is totally puzzling to me. All it made me think of, was Peter Pan fighting with his shadow 😉
Even though I did take the photo in Kensington Gardens, I don’t think that it was what the people in charge of the gardens had in mind.
When I posted the photo on flickr, people who commented didn’t have a clue either. It seems that to an Englishman, it means that the ground may get slippery and it’s a caution sign.
So an image can sometimes be more puzzling than a thousand words.
