A telephone kiosk a listed structure?

October 22, 2016

Yes really!  After WWII, many of London's structures were badly damaged by the bombs and so difficult decisions had to be taken about which ones to repair.  As a part of that process the idea of listing structures of historical and/or architectural importance came about which gave these special structures legal protection.  But, it is not just buildings that are protected - in this instance it is the telephone kiosks outside Mount Street Gardens: important because they are designed by a famous English architect Giles Gilbert Scott but also because they are rare.  Only 200 left out of 1700 originally.
