Ever wandered into a launderette and ended up in the 1970s? Ever tried to do a bit of shopping only to find yourself transported back to 1920 – or is it 1990?
If so, you may have accidentally seen some of timewarp London, those bits of the city that look and feel like they've been frozen in a decade long ago – and have no plans to move into the twenty-first century any time soon, either.
