Red Telephone Boxes
Managed By: Icon Here Red Telephone Boxes
Description:
Classic British red telephone boxes, as designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, especially those which have been moved from their original locations.
Expanded Description:

These boxes (or "kiosks") are every bit as iconic a symbol of Britain as London taxis or double-decker buses. Most of them were phased out during the 1980s by British Telecom, and many were sold to collectors. They can now be found all over the world, often not being used to contain payphones.

See here for more information about these little architectural masterpieces.

Instructions for Posting a Red Telephone Boxes Waymark:

Some of these boxes have been painted in colours other than red; it's OK to post them here. The important things is the classic design, with the trademark horizontal bars across the door and side panels.

Please do not submit replicas. The "British phone box" design idea is often copied by restaurants and theme parks, etc.

If you are not sure if a box is genuine, try to open the door. The difficulty of opening the very heavy door is a major practical problem with the Scott design. If a small child can open it, it probably isn't genuine.
