On this, his 200th birthday, we publish a series of photos taken of Anthony Trollope popping up beside examples of his great innovation, the pillar box at sites around London close to where the first pillar boxes (all sadly long gone) were erected.
Five of these now bear a commemorative plaque, also pictured, but the sixth is an interloper. Can you spot the odd one out and say what the connection is with Trollope at its location?
