Those adorable red telephone boxes that adorn the streets of London were designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. The color red was chosen simply to make them easier to spot.
I read an article while in London that said some people in the UK want to get rid of the red telephone booths. I will admit that I saw some that either had grafitti or broken glass. I stepped into one to make a pretend phone call and it smelled of urine - yuck! Pass the hand sanitizer please!
But those that were intact were beautiful - I say don't get rid of them London! They make for a great marketing opportunity. I stopped by to take a pic whenever I had the chance as did countless others.
They’re nostalgic to say the least… I would love to have one sitting in my backyard although I’m not sure if my neighbors would appreciate it very much!
