K6 at The Greyhound (R.I.P.)
Alan Forsdike has sent this sequence of photographs of the removal of
the K6 telephone box on the corner of Fonnereau Road and Anglesea Road
in October 2009.
See our Street
furniture page for more on the K6 and the only
remaining working one in Ipswich that we've been able to find.
"Dear Borin, I discovered your website by chance and have had a
pleasant evening exploring the photos. I am Ipswich born and bred
(going back many generations). Having seen your before and after photos
of the telephone box outside The
Greyhound PH, I thought you might like
to see these pics I took from my house opposite, the day it was
removed. Rev'd Alan Forsdike" Thanks
to Alan for documenting this apparently insignificant, but important
courtesy Rev'd Alan Forsdike
See our Named buildings page
for the 'Newark Lodge' house name, revealed in 2020 by replacement of
the street nameplate (just visible in the last photograph at extreme
right). Thanks again to Alan for
sending the image.
