Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Dark Reds

post-trolleypillar-box-redphone-box-red

Post Office red for me for this week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Dark Reds – when I was young the General Post Office (GPO) not only dealt with everyone’s mail but also with the country’s telephone service, so it’s nice that the colours remain the same today, although the companies are now split and have long since been renamed years ago!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well done finding a couple of red telephone boxes. Buzby would be proud ๐Ÿ™‚

      There are also three in a row outside the Langham Hotel on Regent Street – just opposite the BBC building ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love these photos, Ruth. They are such iconic British items. How many times have I seen tourists having their photo taken while holding open that phone box door? I’ve lost count.

      Thanks Hugh! My mum was a sub-postmistress when I was growing up, so we had a red phone box standing right outside our front gate, and a red post box set into the wall ๐Ÿ™‚
