Sir Gilbert Scott, 1935. Standard K6 telephone kiosk, situated on S side Lawnmarket.

Statement of Interest

K6 design, also known as Jubilee Kiosk, commemorating the Silver Jubilee of George V. The GPO set up a committee to redesign the telephone kiosk for mass production, with a Jubilee concession scheme providing a kiosk for each village with a Post Office. Scott was asked to design the new kiosk in March 1935, and the K6 went into production in 1936.
