Also, for prostitutes.
Hey, they could turn them into photo booths. Except nobody needs them anymore!
Yes, of course - and we love them. :-)Dorthe
I don't have a mobile, so I might need to use one of these one day.
because ethey are nice;)
Beacuse they are wonderful!
Oh good! I truly would miss them if they were gone.
Because they make you smile:-)
These telephone boxes were designed by the architect Giles Gilbert Scott .
They are special and it's great to see them on the streets still. I hope they are preserved or put to a new use, like the one you posted about little while ago.
Let them stay! I have the one on my bookshelf, it always reminds me of London.
I love red telephone boxes. They should be compulsory street furniture in every British city, town and village!! (alongside red post boxes)
the iconic box!
They're lovely, it would be a shame to get rid of them! Plus, a payphone is always important to have around in case you drop your cell phone into one of London's many puddles :oJ
Red phone booths, double decker buses, Royal Mail boxes, all say England to us colonials. Cool traditions that tourism keeps alive. Cute photo, Mo.
I have to admit to having little replicas of these on my shelves and pics to go with them!
Mo, your first photo is classic. It is a near-monochrome, but with the pop of red on the side. Beautiful composition!!!
There's a particularly important red telephone box in the courtyard of the Royal Academy – on the left, just after leaving the road behind. It is made of wood and is one of seven prototypes made by the above-mentioned Giles Gilbert Scott. As far as I know, it is the only example of a listed building within another listed building. Scott derived the iconic domed roof from the mausoleum of another important architect, Sir John Soane: http://www.discoverthereallondon.com/page183.html
Do you know, it never struck me that was the reason! I can't remember the last time I used a phonebox - in the days when we did use them, they always stank of pee as I recollect...
Phone box must be keep, because if not, where is going to change its clothes Superman? :-)
