The Call Box

We passed this red rocket phone booth sitting on the highway. Of course I went up and peeked inside, where I found books! Maybe it is some kind of local book exchange? England is famous for it's red phone booths (or call boxes, as they call them). They are now starting to pop up all over silicone valley as the latest "in" thing.

I love this idea of a local book exchange that comes in the form of a red phone booth. So convenient to exchange a book with one that we have finished reading wherever we are.

Hi Ginny
Yes we used to have those red phone boxes on every corner almost but sadly they have nearly all disappeared. They were originally replaced with more modern one's but even these are going now. With most people using mobile phones these days they just were not getting used.
I mourn the loss of them as they were a part of our heritage and unique but that's so called progress, thankfully we still have our red post boxes.
