The red telephone box was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott (1880- 1960) and, along with the red post box and the red London bus, is an instantly recognisable symbol of Britain. As good as any Dickens novel is the triumphant and tragic story of the greatest architectural dynasty of the 19th century. This is a story bound to the changing fortunes of Watts. From the Romanic heights of the Midland Hotel at St Pancras station to the modern image of Battersea Power Station, this is the story of the Scott family. The rise of Sir George Gilbert Scott to the very heights of success, the fall of his son George Junior and the rise again of his grandson Giles. It is a story of architects bent on a mission to rebuild Britain. Watts & Co continues to be managed with the same passionate obsession by the now fifth generation of the Scott family.
