April's Shower of Photos 3

I think I can just about get away with counting these as buildings ... public payphones are rapidly becoming an anachronism in the face of the ubiquitous mobile phone, and most of the traditional red British phone boxes have been replaced. A few have been kept to preserve character, including these two. The building you can just see behind is the house on which Mary Norton based The Borrowers, now a school.

We usually try and find these for people when they visit the UK. There are Red ones by Harrods but I like the green ones in Victoria Embankment's gardens :)
