Death of an Icon

Phone Box, originally uploaded by factoids.

This is a piece of contemporary art by the brilliant Banksy.  These lovely old K2 telephone kiosks, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, will not be around for much longer. Like Routemaster buses, they are being slowly phased out. It’s a pity but that’s progress for you. Pay phones will be obsolete within a decade anyway.
