Please do not – Long list of English interdictions
English society is constellated by interdictions and “please do not”. In this public space (Roker beach, Sunderland), you can read four:

2. Please retain footwear while playing in the sandpit
3. Please do not take food or drink of any description into the sand
4. Dogs prohibited
Always swim between the red and yellow flags
Due to dangerous sea conditions, and to the excess of monitoring built in the English mind-set, at the beach it is only allowed to swim between two flags, each colored in yellow and red. Sunderland, England. Bronica SQ-A, Portra 400
