London … setting the (ring) tone for new designs on the iconic British Red Phone Box

Over the past few weeks I have been tweeting photos (@TheLadyTravels) of the iconic British Red Phone Box. Now this is not as sad as it sounds. These imaginative replicas with a twist have recently appeared all over London as part of the BT ArtBox project to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and forthcoming Olympics. The designs are presently being auctioned off (13th – 23rd July) to raise money for the charity support phone-line Childline as part of its own 25th year anniversary celebrations. Although a very worthwhile cause and I hope a lot of money is raised in the process, it’s almost a shame that these designs couldn’t have become permanent fixtures on the London streets as they are just utterly marvellous.

Sadly, I didn’t find them all in time, but I gave it my best shot. Here are all my photos which I also tweeted using the hashtag #BTArtBox. Please note: if you are easily bored (by my posts) then be warned, there are a lot of photos and typical TLT quips following.
