Out of Order 1989
Old London Road
Kingston Upon Thames
Visit Old London Road, the site of Kingston’s iconic falling over phone boxes ‘Out of Order’ by artist David Mach RA (1989).
Twelve quintessentially British pillar-box red telephone boxes lean against one another, one standing upright with the rest tilted to various degrees. They snake in a curve until the final one is almost, but not quite, flat on the ground.
If you venture beyond this sculpture, you’ll find an eclectic mix of unusual and interesting shops on Old London Road.
