It was adapted from the Birmingham model and would later be redesigned with a different window frame.

The K2 was too big and too expensive for mass production so the K1 Mk 236 was introduced in 1927 and produced throughout the country.

The GPO still wanted a new design and asked Sir Giles to produce another design, in 1929 the K3 appeared, a smaller, concrete version of the K2.

A selection of new designs that were to be the most perfect telephone kiosks you could imagine.

The most commonly used design was the KX100 which was the kiosk design but also introduced were the KX200, a hooded unit, the KX300, a triangular unit designed to be used in groups and the KX410 & 420, phones on posts.

For a brief time, the K8 was painted yellow but this didn't last and they were soon returned to red.

Vandalism was always a problem with telephone boxes and during the 70s British Telecom made another modification to the K6, many kiosks had their glazing bars ripped out and had a single piece of glass put in like the K8.The kiosk was perfect, it had all the good points of the K1s and K3s mixed with the solidness of the K2 and most importantly, the small size and elegance the GPO were looking for.It did have vandal problems though, so in 1939 a Mk 2 design came out with improved features to make them less of an easy target for the vandal.The design was essentially a telephone bolted onto a yellow hood.The design proved to be a success in the areas it was used.The K6 was widely replaced with KXs and there was much uproar at the loss of the classic kiosk.
