The owner of an Elephant & Castle kebab shop had reacted with disappointment to the inclusion of his takeaway in a new book of pictures of urban grime and decay.
"The picture is hardly a reflection of the shop's interior state and cleanliness," says Lefteris Garofalakis, owner of Sonny's.
"The council's regular and thorough health & safety checks, coupled with the continued support of our clients, tell a different story.
"It seems the picture is trying to convey the general state of neglect seen around Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre."
The book also includes an image of pigeons roosting on the roof of Tai Tip Mein noodle bar at the Elephant, as well as a depiction of the Heygate Estate seen from the platforms of Elephant & Castle Railway Station.
Two Waterloo scenes are also included: the graffiti-damaged fascia of Fishcotheque in Waterloo Road, and the Alaska Street counter of the highly eccentric (and now closed) Enis's cafe – though unfortunately this is captioned as Efe's.
'Shit' is defined by the author as meaning "unspecified item(s), 'stuff', 'thing(s)'".
