This post is all about the British Telephone Kiosk. Yup – I am seriously scraping the bottom of the post-u-lar ( I know I know!) barrel. I am spending my saturday evening posting about blinking telephone kiosks. Could my life get any more exotic or exciting? I took a couple of photos of 2 kiosks at Highbury Corner yesterday, and then found this sight where you can buy a telephone kiosk for the grounds of your mansion for up to £8500 – bargain! If I suddenly had a windfall, I might buy one.
I did not know that some kiosks on London streets are actually listed buildings. That is funny. I suppose they could be considered to be buildings of sorts. In the old days I remember sheltering from the rain in one, and I am aware that many gentlemen think that they are also latrines as well as communication boxes. One could become a bit of a geek about the different types of box, try and get all the K8’s listed………go on really wonderful sites about interesting facts about the telephone box bla bla bla.

It was a ruse so I could post this song….love it!
Useful things telephone boxes! Spotted one when I was cycling down a country lane during a downpour. It was all steamed up and had 6 bikes propped up against it. Yep, they were all inside!
