'Accessorize' gives us a handbag and purse in 2016
From the website: London calling! Designed to resemble the red telephone boxes lining the streets of the big smoke, this novelty bag will add a pop of city cool to your outfit. This stand-out style is lined in contrast pink fabric, and features a co-ordinating shoulder strap too.

Marks and Spencer provide an updated and modern version of a 'Cookie' tin
A box that tells its own story, a police officer knocking on a glass pane to attract the young girls attention as there are people waiting to use the box. A city gent probably worried about his stocks and shares situation; a couple laden with shopping and young child wanting to phone for a taxi and the girls' punk friends hiding around the rear of the box plotting mischief in between blowing bubble gum bubbles - magic!
Let us not forget the legend of Superman
He used a telephone kiosk to transform from mortal to superhero ............. and it looks as if there was a demand for 'cookie' jars and money boxes in the form of the man emerging from the kiosk!
Two views of a money box probably from the first part of the 20th century.
Artwork on which a tin (possibly money-box) was fashioned - see index sidebar.
The header on this page consists of the stamp design of the telephone kiosk as copyrighted to the Post Office and one of the winter 2010 views of our own 'El Tel' covered in snow.
