You Can Call Me Owl

You Can Call Me Owl, is inspired by Birmingham’s significant contribution to the development of the once familiar telephone box. In 1921, the first UK standard telephone kiosk, the ‘K1’, was introduced; adapted from a public kiosk pioneered in Birmingham. This owl is based on Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s iconic, red ‘K6’ telephone box, of which, there were once nearly 70,000 across Britain!
