  1. Well you don’t see many of these phone boxes any more do you?? Whenever I see them, I always point them out to the kids who look at me, bemused at the thought of someone not having a smart phone! Amusing you also managed to get the phone box in the image.

    • There’s quite a few of them in Cheltenham, so I forget that you don’t see them anywhere else! They do definitely confuse kids though.

    • It is Cheltenham! There’s a couple of groups of four on the Promenade.

    • Thanks very much 🙂 They’re still around in Cheltenham, so I forget they’re not around much in other places!

  3. Two icons in one shot! I haven’t seen a red phone box is ages. In fact, the last time I saw one it was in someone’s garden (goodness knows how they got it). #MySundayPhoto

    • I’d love to have my own red phone box! There’s quite a few of them in Cheltenham, so I forget that they’re rare!

  4. You don’t see many of those anymore – what a great splash of colour for a dreary day (love that the car behind matches too)

    • Thanks very much, it really was a dreary days! There are a few in Cheltenham, so I forget that they’re rare. The car was a lucky coincidence.

    • Kids really don’t understand them at all! There’s quite a few of them in Cheltenham, I think they look lovely.

  7. Love red phone boxes. Wish we had more…not that I’d use them!

    • They look lovely, don’t they? It’s understandable that there aren’t many around any more as nobody uses them.

  8. Do people even use phone boxes any more? #mysundayphoto

  9. Love all these together! My mum’s local phone box is a library, which I think is a great idea!

    Post a Reply
    • That’s a really good idea! There are some close to these which are used to exhibit things from the local museum.

  10. Ahh! I do love those old phone boxes. I cant remember the last time I saw one up here. x

    • I forget that there’s not many of them around any more as I often see these in Cheltenham.

  11. Guess this narrows it down to England and not Humberside? #MySundayPhoto

    • Yes, it’s Cheltenham 🙂

  12. Cheltenham? I forget how unusual these phone boxes are these days. I wonder how long it will be until they become a thing of the past. Great photo!

    • I forget they’re unusual too! I think they’re listed or something in Cheltenham, so hopefully they will be there for many years to come.

  13. they’re lined up like how a cat sits, all 4 (paws) together. are they operational or housing cash machines and defibs?

    Post a Reply
    • I think these are probably operational, but there’s some up the road which house museum exhibits.

    • I think these are operational, but there’s some others up the street that house museum exhibits.

  14. Hi Sarah, there’s nothing like a good old-fashioned red phone box (in the rain too) to make a photo typically English. I love it!

    • Thanks very much. There was a really good reflection in real life, but it didn’t show up very well on the photo.

  15. Nobody could mistake the British icon of a telephone box. I noticed one in France which was rather odd once. #MySundayPhoto

    Post a Reply
    • That is very odd!

  16. WOW you don’t see those often do you, never mind 4. They look great. xx
