One of my favorite UK transportation blogs Diamond Geezer does a take down of leaflet racks: Can't find what you're looking for? provided by the normally sensible (by US standards) Transport for London.
The leaflet racks in London Underground ticket halls used to have blank backgrounds.
Now they have information panels.
Can't find what you're looking for?
That's probably because the second row of information is hidden by
a) the leaflets
b) the rack
Congratulations to the panel's designer, who failed to realise that leaflet racks hold leaflets.
And a round of applause for whoever approved the new design to be rolled out across the entire network, despite it being unfit for purpose.
