It’s been more than a month since I posted an OOTD/ WIWTD but if you follow me on Instagram you can see bits and pieces of what I wore at the events I go to and where I got them. But today is particulary a special day because I want to tell you more than just what I wore, but the story of the backdrop I used for this outfit post.
Did you know that the red telephone box is a much-cherished symbol of Britishness. It is voted the greatest British design of all time (second is the double decker bus and third is the unicorn jack only)
It was only in 2002 when some of them were being restored , out of the 92,000 BT payphones across the UK since the 1900’s there are 57,500 remaining, of which just 9,400 are traditional red models.
In the UK they now have this Adopt-a-Kiosk scheme, in place since 2012, which allows councils and charities to purchase a red phone box for £1, ensuring thes red phone booth stays in place even if they no longer work because people now depend on their mobile phones.
