Let’s Get History of Telephone Box:
The red telephone box or a telephone kiosk for a public telephone designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. It is a familiar sight on the streets of the United Kingdom, Malta, Bermuda and Gibraltar. In recent years, red telephone boxes can be observed in many places and in current or previous British colonies throughout the world, despite a decrease in their numbers. The red colour was selected for easy visibility. The red phone box is still an iconic London symbol.
Curiously as BT was privatised and sold off by the government, a new livery prevailed in yellow instead of in red with the post office. Some telephone boxes were painted in yellow but BT relented and retained the red colour in response to overwhelming public protest.
It is unconfirmed that the Members of the House of Commons voted for red or yellow telephone boxes. Only one MP, then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, is allegedly voting for yellow.
