Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, 1935. Standard K6 telephone kiosk, situated to E of Royal Bank building.

Statement of Interest

The K6 design, also known as the Jubilee Kiosk, commemorated 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.
