The Soane Memorial in Old St Pancras churchyard, which provided Giles Gilbert Scott with the inspiration for the design of the K2 kiosk’s domed roof.<br />
<br />
The iconic British phonebox has been given a ringing endorsement in a new book charting the expiring institution's fascinating history. <br />
<br />
Aptly titled 'The British Phonebox', the book primarily focuses on the ubiquitous design that's as emblematic to Britain as the black cab, double decker bus and Houses of Parliament. <br />
<br />
Equally interesting are the early chapters, which detail the phonebox's humble 19th century beginnings and the final ones, that bemoan their dwindling numbers <br />

The 96 page paperback, jointly authored by friends Nigel Linge and Andy Sutton, is published by Amberley and costs £13.49.
