I love the old red GPO telephone boxes. I bought one 25 years ago and it now lives here in France. Lets see your photographs of red telephone boxes from around the world.

A friends house in Yorkshire. I asked him if he put the phone box there because of poor cell service:rolleyes: After he saw the photo he cleared out the cobwebs (I guess cell does work).

here's one - Maria Island
Somewhat an enigma as what was once modern (1840's buildings) was supplied with a modern contrivance (phone box) that now too is sliding into the past.

You come up with a good one here Kenny!:-) Most of 'em that remain around here are either vandalised or used as toilets.:-(
I know of a few locally - although not in prime condition. I may try and get around to grabbing a few pics.
