MRS Morris received a phone bill for almost £5,000 in 1989 but we do not know much more about her.

The bill can be seen in her hands, top left.

Classic phone boxes began to fall victim to changing times in 2014, when BT was planning to remove thousands of them from Britain’s streets.

In 2014, the number of calls made from phone boxes had fallen by more than 80 per cent from five years before, partly due to the increasing use of mobile phones.

Brighton and Hove phone boxes were removed from Grand Avenue, while another was lost in Lewes Road and in other areas.

The boxes are so fondly regarded that a number of them appear on Brighton and Hove City Council’s list of historic buildings, including one in Dyke Road, and another in Bloomsbury Place. A number of conversions of red phone boxes took place across the city as well as around the country.

A new chain of coffee shops launched in Brighton in 2014 using the boxes.

Red Box Coffee, the brainchild of local Brighton businessmen Eddie Ottewell and Steve Beeken, took over a number of phone boxes under BT’s Adopt a Kiosk scheme.

The scheme allowed local charities and groups to buy underused red phone boxes from the company for just £1.

The two phone boxes near Brighton’s Pavilion Gardens were transformed into cafes supplying locals and tourists with coffee and ice cream.

The K6 kiosk is known as Britain’s red telephone box but there were eight kiosk types introduced by the General Post Office between 1926 and 1983.
