The British Telephone box is a design classic, but British Telecom is scrapping them. What a shame.

The GPO Telephones in them were also design classics

GPO? General Post Office.

I have two black Type 746 - one in my house and the other in the flat. I keep both in circuit so that a real bell rings when I am called. Modern cordless phones are very convenient, but a real bell is easier to hear than a small digital squawker.
