ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
We ♥ you, too, South London! (Not that we condone this sort of thing).

Anyone know where in South London?
Flat Iron Square, SE1 – Just round the corner from me. Funny, a mate of mine took a snap of this when I pointed it out and sent it to you, but he aint called Luke. Not certain why I’m telling you that, maybe I’m trying to work up some conspiracy theory.
I love BINGOBINGO!
There may or may not be a few Jackhammer Jill stickers stuck up around New York, San Francisco and Tokyo… and maybe Rome and Paris? I forget.
I also wish to know whereabouts this is situated!
The presence of sunshine is compelling evidence that it’s not in England.
I’ve lived in South London, and was sure I recognized this. So I thought I’d have a quick check on Google Maps to confirm.
Turns out I was utterly wrong but – about 2 hours later – I now reckon it’s a railway bridge over Union Street in Southwark:
I now have a deeper appreciation of the number of rivets on various viaducts around where I live, and I can go to bed. Yay!
“(Not that we condone this sort of thing)”
I think Xeni would.
I’m telling you to go out and vandalise property in our name.
I repeat, I’m not telling you to go out and vandalise property in our name.
Wait, there’s a south London? I assumed that south of the river it was all feral rats and stuff. You know, like Knightsbridge.
There’s definitely not as many self-important hipsters round here as in the north…
There’s certainly rats round here, bloody huge bastards.
Please, let’s not encourage this!
It might be a Baggies fan – a supporter of West Bromwich Albion FC. Boing Boing is part of their lexicon when they celebrate their team scoring a goal.
It’s on the cusp between hipster-central Borough Market and gritty geezer Sarf-Lahnden, so it’s hard to tell which Boing Boing they are referring to.
