THE RED TELE­PHONE BOX FROM LON­DON

Business Traveller (India) - - FIND YOUR GREAT BRITAIN -

Con­sid­ered among the top ten de­sign sym­bols of Bri­tain, the iconic red tele­phone boxes con­tinue to dot the streets of Lon­don. In this era of smart­phones, the tele­phone boxes are not much in use any­more, though they stand as a tes­ti­mony to Lon­don's love for its her­itage. The first booth, called Kiosk No. 1 or K1 was in­tro­duced in 1920 and suc­ces­sive mod­els, over decades have been re­leased. The Lon­don tele­phone box is char­ac­terised by its bright red colour and the crown em­bla­zoned on the top.
