Red Row - Charing Cross
The Strand, Charing Coss London
There are few places left, in London at least, where you will see a row of these quintessentially british ‘red’ telephone boxes side by side in this manner.
With a global population of mobile & tablet users, few now physically use designer ‘Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s’ (Kiosk No.2’s or K2’s) boxes to make calls.
They are becoming more & more obsolete, however in keeping with the new wave of 'upcycling', many remaining in the public domain are being found alternate uses.
Some have become featured backdrops in photographic mementos for visiting tourists, others transformed into mini public libraries where shelves have been inserted to house donated second book collections which the public can freely ‘ borrow’, exchange, add to... Some have been bought privately and now stand in front gardens, porches, reception areas etc, while others have been and continue to be transformed into iconic art installations like world reknown artist/sculptor David Mach’s collapsing row of boxes entitled ‘Out of Control’.
Vive le boite rouge!

Re Mounted Prints
Please note that the size stated refers to the size of the mount not the image/print size:
28x20ins (70x50cms) mount with an 18x12ins (45x30cms) central image/print.
16x12ins (40x30cms) mount with a 9x6ins (22x15cms) central image/print.
The mount sizes are the same as the metric frame sizes you will go on to purchase for your mounted prints - be they standard shelf selections from high stores or custom made from your local art framer.
