In London, you can see the popular red telephone box, despite the reduction of their numbers in the past years. Even if they are not only exclusively made for London, here you can see many of the reminding booths. The red design is since 1924, with numerous modifications in time. So, walking on the streets of London you can see numerous designs for essentially the same thing: a phone booth. Don't forget to take photos while talking on the phone in this lovely boxes.
