Iconic red telephone box in London

One sight that used to be prevalent all over the UK was the red telephone box. Sadly, they too are disappearing. London still has a number of them but they are practically not used owing to the prevalence of cell phones. The red telephone box, a telephone kiosk for a public telephone designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, is 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 box can still be seen in many places throughout the UK, and in current or former British colonies around the world. The color red was chosen to make them easy to spot.

The red phone box is often seen as an iconic British symbol throughout the world.
