London’s Iconic Red Telephone Booths; A Little Red Eye Candy!

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!
