Story behind the souvenir

Story behind the souvenir

In the 1920s, the General Post Office (GPO) of Britain commissioned the British architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott to design a new standard telephone booth. The aim was to create a booth that could be installed throughout the country and replace the existing structures at that time.

Scott drew inspiration from the classic design of the wooden K2 telephone booth, also known as the “K2 box.” However, instead of using wood, Scott opted for cast iron as the main material for the new booth. His final design, known as the K6, was selected in 1935 and became the standard telephone booth of the United Kingdom.

The K6 is a bright red, rectangular structure with a domed roof and glass panels on three sides. Inside, there was a public telephone and a small platform for writing notes. Originally, the booth also included a folding seat, but it was later removed.

K6 booths were installed throughout the United Kingdom and became an integral part of British urban life. However, it was in London where these red booths became particularly iconic. Over time, telephone booths have lost their primary function due to technological advancements and the popularity of mobile phones. Many of them have been retired or replaced by more modern versions, but you can still find several historic red booths on the streets of London.
