England - Essex - Public phone box auction.
Looking down from a high viewpoint, prospective auction bidders take notes from their catalogues of old red British Telecom (BT) pay phone boxes which are lined up on display in their hundreds before the actual sale starts. The 'lots' are squeezed together along pathways allowing customers to thoroughly inspect their potential purchases' details. This is a wide-angle picture taken on the slant with the distant boxes curling around to the left. One man in blue who has opened the stiff-opening door, cranes his neck to look up into the ceiling of these solid cast-iron frames. The K-series kiosks were largely designed in 1936 by the iconic designer Giles Gilbert Scott.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
