More information

Background information:
Standard phoneboxes have come up in the street since 1932. They have served well into the '80s. Mainly in places where people gathered was also a phone. In crowded places such as squares or near major public buildings, telephone boxes were regularly in small rows next to each other.
Telephone boxes had on the right wall a rack with phone books. This turned out vandalism sensitive. Since 1984, the standard box was replaced by his green successor "Model 1100".

Architectural details:
The standard phone box has four walls, mainly consisting of glass. These glass walls were broken up into sections, but due to the light gray color of the ribs one does not notice. At the top of the box walls was a blue window with the word TELEFOON. PTT (later PTT Telecom and now part of KPN) managed the Telephone booths.
