History of the famous red phone box.
The General Post introduced the famous red phone box on the streets of Britain. At its peak, the GPO network totalled 92,000 public call boxes. Today, owned by British Telecom, the network comprises 46,000 phone boxes, of which 8,000 are red phone boxes .
The police service saw with 1000 installed examples how the phone booth its contribution to fighting crime could make. In 1963 the Mackenzie Trench Police Box first appeared as the TARDIS in the BBC science fiction series Doctor Who.
Britain's pioneering motor organisations, rival Royal Automobile Club and Automobile Association, recognised the value of the phone to its customers. A total of 1,300 sentinels enabled patrols to keep in contact , and their members to call for help.
Although advanced technology means these kiosks and boxes are largely redundant , many examples still survive, but the rest get Refurbished and sold to private customers worldwide.
