Demise of the Red Phone Box

As far as I can recall, in all of my trips to the UK, I had seriously not taken much attention to this often-said iconic red booths that you are suppose to make phone calls from. Sounds archaic now, but that was the most innovative thing in the early 20th century.

You see, here in Singapore, the phone booths are open. They might be red too, but obviously not in the boxy way the British have them. Them UK ones are probably designed for privacy (?) and perhaps the cold rain that never fails to ruin your day.

With wireless technologies making leaps and bounds (I know, I studied electronics and communications), and the days of the land telephone line is not just numbered, it is a surprise that it still exists! How many of you still have a “land line”?

So these structures are expected to become monuments, if they last.

On any opportunity to journey to the UK, it will definitely be on our other bucket list to take a selfie (or wefie) of the red icon.
