A bit of history about the k2 phone booth
London's red phone booth, officially known as Kiosk No. 2 or K2, is an iconic symbol of Britain. Designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the K2 was introduced in 1926 by the General Post Office (GPO), which was the operator of public telephones in the United Kingdom at the time.
