EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the nostalgic charm of a bygone era, showcasing a group of five iconic telephone boxes standing proudly on the east side of Middlesbrough's town hall in Teesside, North Yorkshire. The image transports us back to the thirties when these cast iron marvels were at their prime, symbolizing communication and connectivity. Designed by renowned architect Giles Gilbert Scott, whose genius is evident in their elegant structure, these red K6 kiosks have become an enduring symbol of British heritage. Each box stands as a testament to the importance placed on public telephony during that time - a lifeline for communities seeking connection and conversation. Bob Cottrell ARPS AFIAP DPAGB has skillfully captured this scene with his lens, preserving not only the physical beauty but also evoking emotions associated with simpler times. The composition invites viewers to imagine bustling streets filled with people eagerly waiting their turn to make calls or share news from afar. As we gaze upon this photograph, we are reminded of how far technology has advanced since those days. Yet there remains something undeniably charming about these telephone kiosks; they serve as reminders of our collective history and evoke feelings of nostalgia for an era where human interaction was cherished above all else.
