The Triumph of the Telephone box by lhart

The Triumph of the Telephone box

Which of these two British classics to write about? The Triumph Tiger manufactured in England and this one was first registered in London, or, the iconic red Telephone box, recognised the world over. This red telephone box was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott to commemorate the silver jubilee of King George V. This design was manufactured between 1936 and 1968, 60,000 were installed and 10,700 are still remaining. This was the 6th reinvention of the Telephone box, the first red box being installed in 1926
Love the fact that you have combined this two timeless British classics in one shot.

@kiwiniknak @jamied @golder365mjsmith @atwinfay @miata2u @gerry @whatsfordessert thanks so much for comments. I have to confess to quite liking motorbikes, I rode pillion with my son on Mothers day - was wonderful. These vintage bikes though, although simpler in design seem to have their own individual characters, and the Telephone box-so iconic.
