Wordless Wednesday

These red phone boxes used to be a British tradition but sadly they're now in demise,  gradually being replaced with more modern versions. 

Which is a shame, as I like the old ones better; they're in my favourite colour and they brighten up the street a bit! 

Happily though various UK communities have adopted old phone boxes and converted them into all manner of things, including (believe it or not) -

  6. Wonderful picture. The only place I see those anymore is in restaurants as part of the decor.

  7. They are so synonymous with the culture, but it would be surprising if they got much use the way every one has a cell phone these days!

  8. Ahhh, that's a shame. I think they symbolize England as well. I know someone who has one in her place of bushiness too. I think you should purchase one Ang and alter it...I know you would do a splendid job.

    tootles,

  9. Oh it's such a shame, isn't it!?! It's like when they tore down the vintage buildings here in the US to put up new glass ones ~ crazy! Doesn't anyone realize they can just put a new phone mechanism into the old structure? Great posting Angie!
