London calling - Tag friends you wana be in London with📞😊🇬🇧 ======================== 📖 - Story time: The Red telephone box you see all around tourist hotspots in London was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. 🎩 . ✔️ - The red telephone box was the result of a competition in 1924 to design a kiosk that would be acceptable to the London Metropolitan Boroughs. 📞 - Did you know? There's been many Design variation since 1921 and They usually called K1, K2, K3 & so on but the K6 model is the one mostly recognise throughout the world! & the Red colour wasn't popular / acceptable at the start. 🌟 - K6 was designed in 1935 (kiosk number six). It was designed to commemorate the silver jubilee of King George V. Back then, It was all around the country and in every corner! . 😔 - Now in 21st century, there's isn't many original classic telephone boxes around. thanks to Smartphones 📱, there's no need of them. Except famous tourist places, You would hardly see them and there isn't any organisation who look after them either! So the remaining boxes, slowly getting rusted and they are getting dumped in Telephone box graveyard in small village of Carlton Miniott, in the north of England. Who knows if you'll see them in next 50 years! 😔 ♥️ - But yh gotta say, there's few has been repurposed thanks to some private buyers! - telephone boxes been turned mini Library, heart defibrillator, art gallery and more! I just hope there will be many more wonderful projects like this in the future & people will keep this British icon going 😍🇬🇧🎉 ========================= 📷 About this shot: Took this picture When @dasha_enjoy.english booked me for her London photoshoot.
