The red telephone box was the result of a competition in 1924 to design a kiosk that would be acceptable to the London Metropolitan Boroughs which had hitherto resisted the Post Office's effort to erect K1 kiosks on their streets.
The Royal Fine Art Commission was instrumental in the choice of the British standard kiosk.
Cheaper than the K2, it was still significantly more costly than the K1 and so that remained the choice for low-revenue sites.
The standard colour scheme for both the K1 and the K3 was cream, with red glazing bars.
Matt Ansell, chairman of the club, said: “It was about 20 minutes into the game and he fell to the ground. It was pretty obvious quite quickly that something was wrong.The invitation had come at the time when Scott had been made a trustee of Sir John Soane's Museum: his design for the competition was in the classical style, but topped with a dome reminiscent of Soane's self-designed mausoleums in St Pancras' Old Churchyard and Dulwich Picture Gallery, London.The original wooden prototypes of the entries were later put into public service at under-cover sites around London.From 1926 K2 was deployed in and around London and the K1 continued to be erected elsewhere.K3, introduced in 1929, again by Giles Gilbert Scott, was similar to K2 but was constructed from concrete and intended for nationwide use.
