This project documents the remaining 239 telephone boxes within the city of Hull. The telephone boxes in Hull are a different colour to everywhere else in the UK. Searching through archives I tried to understand how and why Hull was different. It became apparent that the telephone system in Hull wasn't just about a telephone; it was about a community and pride. The telephone system offered quirky services and tried to cater for all, children, mothers, fishermen, even pigeon lovers. However there is a sadness in this project, that these telephone kiosks are been made redundant, and have almost become invisible in today's society.
