It's Good To Talk

Two vintage red telephone boxes are to be restored as part of plans to transform Manchester’s St Peter’s Square.

 

The Grade Two-listed red phone kiosks are on Library Walk, between the Library Theatre and Town Hall Extension.

 

 

They were designed to commemorate the silver jubilee of King George V in 1935 and installed in Manchester city centre in the 1950s.

 

Now they are to be restored by BT for generations to come as part of a huge revamp of St Peter’s Square and the Town Hall complex.

 

The traditional cast-iron kiosks are protected after being given listed status by English Heritage.
