Photo 101 : Day 17- Glass


Old telephone box

Old telephone box

The old telephone box, pictured above, is something that is not seen or used very much anymore, with practically everyone now having their own mobile phone, which makes communication so much easier. I can remember spending lots of time in telephone boxes when growing up, or queuing outside one while the person in the box holds a long conversation with their friend/lover/parent or whatever.   Even worse was the frustration of finding the right change, walking to the nearest phone box, only to find that it was out of order or worse still, that the handpiece was missing or broken….Oh the joys of the olden days!!!

I took this photo last night, but I didn’t check inside the booth, so I am not sure if it is still a working telephone, or just there as a reminder of things past.

    Great old box! But I especially like the lighting with the lighter yellow from inside the box, with the golden glow in the surrounding street and building, and an interesting reflection from the window of the shop. Very nice photo.

    Ah, the days when you had to go via an operator who could listen in to the conversation 🙂 Lovely pic.
