Telephone box in a small village in West Somerset. Should we keep our red boxes or not?
I must admit I knew very little of their origin, till I checked the history of them.
Designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, there is the K2,K6 & K8.
This one is a K6,and built to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of King George V in 1935.
They once were our means of communication, my brother used the red box to call the doctor when I was about to be born, there were no mobile phones, and very few homes had a phone in the 1940s or 50s...it was press button A or button B ! Sad they were so often vandalised in later years.
I say keep them, they are part of our history, I think they're great......

Drastic to remove the few remaiinig ones, M, they are a wonderful retro feature of the British landscape! Well spotted. Far better standing by a country roadside than in some yuppy's garden!
I was looking on the net and some people have managed to get a Grade 11 listed order placed on village ones. I hope more people apply, or at least protect them. Excellent retro image.
