Call me Red

There are a few things that, for me, represent London and the UK in general:

  • red double-decker buses
  • royal guards in uniform
  • Big Ben
  • red phone boxes

Now that so many people have and carry cell phones, the traditional telephone booth is rapidly disappearing. I’ve read several articles lately about this phenomenon, including how it impacts those who do not have or carry mobile phones. (Just try to find a working pay phone!)

This article that gives a fascinating look at the rehabilitation of Great Britain’s iconic red telephone boxes.

At the cost of anywhere between £2,000 and £10,000, a fully restored phone box is not an inexpensive purchase but think how amazing it would be to own one!
