No. 29: Phone Boxes


“Stand on a roadside in London and you’d be forgiven for thinking every object that provides a valuable public service has been painted an identical shade of red, so that Londoners can be on a constant state of alert as to where they are and what dangers may be present. These include: postboxes, double-decker buses, Royal Mail delivery vans, and fire engines, but the most iconic of all are red phone boxes.”
