What if you could create a picture booth that didn’t look like a dentist’s office?
The London telephone booth, a common sight across the city, was designed in 1932 by a British architect, Walter Brinkman, and it stands today as a classic.
Brinkman was inspired by the telephone booths of the 20th century and by a telephone line he had seen at the Great Exhibition in Paris.
The phone booth was the “picture booth” of the time, but Brinkhams idea was to make it work for everyday life.
Brackley and Brinkmann were both born in London in 1879.
The couple had a daughter named Alice and their son James was born in 1910.
Brinkmen was working as a photographer at the time and worked on the design for Brinkmans London Telephone Booth.

Brankmann’s London Telephone booth is located on the north bank of the Thames, at the mouth of the River Thames in London, just a short distance from the Houses of Parliament.
Brinkham and Brackley had lived in London for over 20 years and their London Telephone Box, designed by the British architect Walter Brunkmann, has a simple, yet elegant design.
The telephone booth is a classic in the UK, but in the US, a different kind of “picture-box” was created.
For a time, the telephone booth was a feature of homes and offices in the United States, but as more and more Americans moved to urban areas in the late 20th and early 21st century, telephone booths began to disappear.
In the UK and Australia, telephone booth were usually seen as an inconvenience and not a necessity.
Although the telephone was an important piece of modern technology in the 20s and 30s, the idea of having a phone booth in your house was not common until the 1960s.

When the telephone became more and a number of Americans moved into suburban areas and suburban living became more common, telephone box became a common place to hang out.
British telephone company, British Telephone, was formed in the early 20th Century and became the first British telephone company to offer a wide range of services.
By the 1960’s, telephone was becoming more popular than ever in the country, and in the 1960, telephone companies across the UK began to introduce a range of phone booths to cater to different markets and tastes.
It was around this time that Brackleys phone booth, the London Telephone House, was built.
Luxury telephone booths became the new standard for living.
“It’s the telephone, but with more charm,” the London telephone booths slogan began.

During the Victorian era, telephone service was limited to a handful of places in London.
As the phone and telephone service became more widespread, Brinkleys London telephone was one of Brinkleys greatest successes.
This phone booth is now a tourist attraction, which makes Brinkys phone booth even more attractive to tourists.
After Brink’s London telephone died, it was sold to the US company, American Telephone, which brought the London phone booth to the United Kingdom.
Today, Brankleys telephone booth still serves as a tourist location, but it now serves as the home of the London office of the British Telephone Company.
What if you were to design a phone box that you could live in for the rest of your life?

Its original plan was to build a telephone booth in the shape of a round ball and then put it on the top of a tree and call it the telephone.
But Brink, Brack and their staff weren’t happy about the idea and they wanted to create a different type of telephone booth.
To do this, Brunk, Bracked and their team decided to use a series of wire-frame panels to build the telephone box.
They did this by attaching a small piece of wood to the base of the telephone and using a combination of tape and glue to make the wire frame.
Once the telephone’s base was secured, they put the telephone on the wire and glued it to the top.
From this position, the phone could be hung from the
