The red telephone boxes are now being sold in Great Britain. The demand for the famous telephone boxes is incredible given the price of two thousand pounds each. Antique collectors from around the world are buying them. However, many Londoners are convinced that the booths should remain on the streets of the city.
English are very practical people. If something is worn out or no longer needed - it should be disposed of. But what can you with something that has been considered the symbol of British design for almost 80 years?
These beautiful booths have lost their purpose, when humanity invented mobile phones. So why would you need on of these beauties? To wait through a London shower? Light up a cigarette? To use a mobile phone under the cover? This payphone still accepts coins. So last century! Let's give it a try. 50 pence. Hello, does any one still actually needs this booth?"
"The demand is incredible! They are being purchased to stand in the garden or by pool. Pub landlords and hotel owners are among our customers. Mostly it is the generation that used to carry coins to use these payphones."
Seeing that there is a demand for these cast-iron boxes weighing 700 kilograms, their owner, a well known telecommunications company decided to sell, not scrap. Two thousand pounds apiece. There is already a queue made up of English antique collectors interested in buying. One of them, Bob Thorpe, says that people are not paying for the box but for nostalgia.
"It is a part of my life. Back in my childhood we jammed the payphone with pennies so that the grown-ups could not get any change. We then picked it up later."
A dirty and rusty booth transforms in to a new one within a week in Bob's workshop. It is being polished, painted and has glass windows put in. You would not sell a booth with windows made of Plexiglas would you? Booths that used glass were regularly broken during the 60s. Last week two K-6's, which is the booth's official name in the Royal Register - "cast iron telephone box", were shipped to Russia. Five were ordered from clients in America. But many Londoners are opposed to these historic booths being sold.
"They are a part of our city. The don't bother anyone. They need to be touched up looked after so they can be here forever. Just look how good they are!
The English know how to find a use for them. Inside you can have a library or even a miniature art gallery.
Or you can carry out a typically English experiment: how many Mexicans in sombreros will fit in a single telephone box.
"I think they are quite lovely and brighten up the city. But whether they are useful or not, I am not sure."
"There are still people without mobile phones. For them this may be the only opportunity to phone home and say "I'm calling from London!"
The local authority promised that at least a hundred of red telephone boxes will remain in central London. Something for tourists to take a picture of and for Londoners to boast about.
