Telephone boxes

Hi, it’s the L-Hasi. 

On Saturday I was lucky enough to venture back to Portobello and Golborne  Road for some grocery shopping. The weather was lovely bright and dry. We haven’t had that for a while so it was very appreciated. 

I came across this old telephone box. Once a quintessential London icon now they have become obsolete. Who nowadays uses a telephone box to make a call? Hardly anybody. 

So I was pleased to see that, rather than leaving this one to rot or discarding of it completely, it has been adapted for newer times:

It still has a phone but now the inside has been changed to house a cash point. 

I think it’s a clever way to make it fit for newer times while retaining its old charms. If all the red phone boxes where to go, London would loose a little part of itself. And let’s face it: they make fabulous backdrops for pictures, for Londoners and visitors a like: This is from when B-Hasi came to visit a few winters ago.

    das ist wirklich ein ganz doller Eintrag und hoffen wir mal, dass sich London
    auch mit diesen wunderschönen Telefonzellen nicht ändert !!
