Wordless Wednesday — Green Telephone Box

Green Telephone Box

I know it’s meant to be Wordless Wednesday, but I couldn’t resist this bit of information.

Most British telephone boxes are painted red, although in 1949 the Royal Fine Arts Commission started allowing green ones in rural areas.

Doubtless, some people consider telephone box spotting as the type of activity enjoyed by an anorak-clad nerd. That being said, you might like to read an article titled Kiosk No 6, which is the history of telephone box styles.
