Phone Boxes

Telephone Graveyard
Just along the road from us a neighbor has an old British phone box.  He bought it for some strange reason.  It's odd to think how common they were during my lifetime.  I'm sure today's young people would not even recognise them at all.  They were always painted red, apart from the city of Hull who had their own phone system, and remained independent of the General Post Office.  Hull's were painted green, like the ones in Ireland.  The one near us has large panels of glass rather then the narrow ones shown here in this graveyard.  Thanks to my friend Keith in the Marina for this sorry sight from my youth.
