Kingston upon Thames
Located in south-west London, Kingston was the ancient market town where Saxon kings were crowned – it became part of Greater London in 1965. One of the more unusual sights in Kingston is several disused red telephone boxes that have been tipped up to lean against one another in an arrangement resembling dominoes. The sculpture by David Mach was commissioned in 1988.
