Press Button B

I think we saw more phone boxes in Leamington than I have seen anywhere in recent years. Admittedly one did have a defibrillator in it rather than a phone

They are all in good condition, too, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I guess they must get used.
A great shot!
Bill Phillips: Thanks E. A rare sight these days

I admit this is a great oddity the truth of which I cannot fathom..
Bill Phillips: Presumably they must get well used

These boxes are in a very good , clean state or condition!
Bill Phillips: That they are there is unusual, that they are there and clean is almost unbelievable Philine

I remember this extraordinary sight Bill. You have captured it well, I’m reluctant to add.
Bill Phillips: I am sad that you feel reluctant Chad
This makes a great image, and one for the archive if such boxes are getting rarely. In not too many years your grandchildren will ask "what's that Grandad?".
Bill Phillips: They will probably have all disappeared in the next few years Sheila
In case of bad news?
Bill Phillips: The old phones had two buttons. You put your money in and dialled the number. If it was answered you pressed button A and your money went into the cash box. If nobody answered you pressed button B and got your money back. When we were kids we always used to go into empty phone boxes and press button B incase someone had forgotten to...sometimes a lot of coins came out!
They are in much better condition than the doors on the building behind.
Bill Phillips: Hhaahahahaha very true Brian

No there is are sight. They look to be well cared for, too. I forget the last time I used a public phone; I hope I never have to.
Bill Phillips: Not in several years . They were often not pleasant

it's been years since i've seen a working phone booth in person

i've always love your country's red booths
Bill Phillips: They are a design classic by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott who also designed the Anglican cathedral in Liverpool and Bankside power station in London which now is the home to the Tate Modern Art gallery
