Phone Booth in the Lake District

This is a beautiful picture of an old phone booth taken by myself whilst visiting the amazing British Lake District . These phone booths hold memories of the past for many of us and are an unfortunate victim of the digital age. This picture would look great in just about any setting and we can secure it in a mount and frame of you choosing. Your print is free of charge if you use our framing service to complete the image.

The red telephone box, a telephone kiosk for a public telephone designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, was a familiar sight on the streets of the United Kingdom, Malta, Bermuda and Gibraltar.

Despite a reduction in their numbers in recent years, the traditional British red telephone kiosk can still be seen in many places throughout the UK, and in current or former British colonies around the world. The colour red was chosen to make them easy to spot.

From 1926 onwards, the fascias of the kiosks were emblazoned with a prominent crown, representing the British government. The red phone box is often seen as a British cultural icon throughout the world.[1] In 2006 the K2 telephone box was voted one of Britain’s top 10 design icons, which included the Mini, Supermarine Spitfire, London tube map, World Wide Web, Concorde and the AEC Routemaster bus.[2][3] Although production of the traditional boxes ended with the advent of the KX series in 1985, many still stand in Britain.
