Sometimes we take things for granted, that things are there; we don’t notice them anymore. We walk past, until the moment someone else points it out.

Introduction Hull as a Unique Place Hull, or given its full title Kingston Upon Hull, is a unique place. Situated on the River Humber, it is rich in cultural history but also a place of transition and regeneration. Hull prides itself on its ability to be independent and unique, for example, Hull, is the only city that does not have a Cathedral. When the Humber Bridge opened in 1981 it was the largest single span suspension bridge in the World, Hull has the third largest port in Britain and at its height,w as the home of the world’s largest deep sea water fishing fleet and the biggest whaling port in Britain. Hull prides itself on key individuals, birthplace to poets Andrew Marvell, Philip Larkin, and slave absolutist William Wilberforce. In a battle for independence Hull has stood out, in 1642 King Charles I was refused entry to the city, this was significant as it was the first act of defiance toward he King which later led to the Civil War. During the Second World War, Hull was the most bombed centre of occupation outside of London, sustaining 82 air raids killing and injuring many citizens and destroying many homes and buildings. Of 92,660 homes only 5,945 remained unscathed. However Hull has re built itself nd it continues to change and progress, developing new buildings and tourist attractions including the award winning The Deep aquarium (Skinner 2009). Hull’s Cream Telephone Kiosks One aspect in which Hull is unique is its telephone kiosks, which are cream and omit the crown symbol. Currently it has 239 telephone kiosks remaining, however this is rapidly declining. Hull is the only place in the UK to have its own telephone system. Background In 1899 the Telephone Act was passed allowing local authorities to apply for a license to open their own telephone systems. Local authorities already regulated gas, water, electricity, transport and other public amenities. Of the 1,334 urban local authorities that might have sought licences under the Telegraph Act, only 13 asked for licences, all of which were granted: Glasgow, Belfast, Grantham, Huddersfield, Tunbridge Wells, Brighton, Chard, Portsmouth, Hull, Oldham, Swansea, Scarborough and West Hartlepool. Although only six actually opened telephone systems: Glasgow (1901), Tunbridge Wells (1901), Swansea (1902), Portsmouth (1902), Brighton (1903) and Hull (1904). Only Hull continues now, the remaining five services were all sold to the National Telephone Company, which was later taken over by the Post Office at the end of 1913 (WWW. “UK Telephone History” 2010) Design Hull’s telephone service went from strength to strength and grew in popularity. This can be seen purely through the design of the kiosks from the K1 (Kiosk 1) a 1920’s design, one of the few examples of the 1920 early design to remain featured on page .... The K6(Kiosk No.6) design, seen on page ...was created for the silver jubilee of King George V. Gilbert Scott designed the ‘Jubilee Kiosk’ and it is perhaps the most familiar and is regarded as a typical British landmark. The difference between the Hull K6 and the Red K6 is the crown omitted (WWW “The Telephone Box” 2012).Another popular design was the K8 (Kiosk No.8) Introduced in 1968, designed by Bruce Martin, the key feature of this kiosk was its lack of privacy which was meant to reduce

vandalism and theft an example can be seen on page .... In 1985 British Telecom Introduced a new series the KX range, the most popular is the KXplus this modern style combines both the shape of the K6 but with a modern style seen on page ... . This project offers an insight into some of the designs, and also indicates the time periods when the boxes were most popular (WWW. “A Pictorial guide to telephone boxes”). The Telephone Kiosk and the Community Throughout this project I have found out more and more about the services offered to the public through the telephone boxes. I was lucky enough to trace Mrs Joyce Bowering who worked at the Telephone Exchange. Mrs Bowering recorded entertainment and news which would be played through the telephone. She was the voice of the two minute Bedtime Stories, which aired between 5.30pm – 8.30pm on an evening, which often caused queues to gather outside the kiosks. Other stories for children included Tufty Stories aimed at young children to educate on road safety. Other services offered included Weather Reports, and TeleChef line, not forgetting the Dial a Pigeon line and Teledisc, which put people through to listen to the record of the week. Mrs Bowering told me how queues at the telephone box were a common sight and how they were kept in good condition having cleaners who cleaned them, engineers and the police used them frequently too. The kiosks even had a paper directory in each phone box. Through speaking to Mrs Bowering it made me think about how the telephone box was treated with a respect and how it became the hub of the community. This project has made me think how the phone box now stands alone, unnoticed in most instances and how it is becoming a rarity to see these iconic structures. Within Hull, six sites which house eight telephone boxes are now classified as listed buildings (WWW. “Listed Buildings”) which will protect them, however it is hard to imagine that the telephone box will make a comeback in today’s society, especially since its necessity is under constant strain. Today Public telephone kiosks were situated in various locations across the city, queues would form to use the telephone box. Now the mobile phone is replacing the public and home telephones, making the public kiosks redundant. The aim of this work is to document the remaining kiosks, before they are gone. This study focuses purely on the public kiosks within the Hull Boundary. Many villages and small towns on the outskirts of Hull still have the cream telephone boxes; however these do not feature in this study.

Acknowledgments

I would like to thank some key people without whom this project wouldn’t have existed. Christopher Nicole from Hull City Council, Anna Miller from Kingston Communications and the staff at Hull History Centre for their continual support. I would also like to thank my family, friends and Julie Bowering who have given their time to encourage and support me throughout this project.
