Reinventing Phoneboxes

Hi Everyone,

 

Olga’s post last week about the solar powered mobile charger got me thinking there must be thousands of old red phone boxes going to waste in scrap yards across the country, with the rise of mobile phones I can't remember the last time I actually made a call from a payphone nor can I recall the last time I seen a red phonebox that was actually in service.

 

Then noticed when taking a browse over the BT Better Futures website I noticed there is a company that is thinking outside the box (excuse the pun) when it comes to reinventing red phone boxes that are now obsolete in a world of smart phones. 

 

It made me smile at the thought of buying a coffee or even an ice cream from a red phone box in my town centre. I was also even more surprised to see that defibrillators have also been placed in adopted kiosks, what a great idea especially in rural communities where emergency services might take a longer to reach.

If you could reinvent a phone box what would you turn it into?

Most of the red phone boxes I have seen are still being used as they always have been... as toilets!

That looks a bit more posh than the ones I have seen!
