Doing the double in Frodsham ............. making a telephone call and posting a letter

Now this is a telephone box with a difference.

It is according to the blue plaque nearby a “Telephone Kiosk circa 1927 K4 style 'The Vermillion Giant'

Designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, only fifty were made and this believed to be one of only four examples known to have survived Listed Grade II"*

I have Brian Robertson to thank for letting me use the image which comes from his excellent facebook site Greater Manchester History, Architecture, Faces and Places.

And that pretty much is all there is to say about it.

Except perhaps that I remain in awe of the variations on a simple telephone box.

Location; Frodsham, Cheshire
