You’ve seen clouds form faces, and heard of portraits on toast, but musicians on telephone exchange boxes may be new to you.

A keen-eyed photographer caught music legend Bob Dylan appear on a well-worn green box in Ardleigh Green Road, Ardleigh Green.

Tracey Dunn was a passenger in her sister’s car as they were on their way to visit family in Romford when she spotted the “peculiar” sight.

Ms Dunn, who now lives in Liverpool, said: “I was in the passenger side and I just spotted it. It was amazing.

“If you really look at the world you see these things everywhere but I wouldn’t go as far as to say it was a message from Bob.”

The corroded electrical box strikes a remarkable resemblance to a ‘60s Dylan.

Whether it really is Dylan, who is now 73 and touring Australia, is uncertain.
