Seeing Red? Don’t worry, me too. There are so many wonderful and amazing things that I will take away from my time in England and the beautiful red phone booths is one of them. Not literally, although I would love to have one, just in my memory and in my pictures.
I am actually very surprised that there are still so many phone booths standing on street corners and in city centers. With the idea that most people have a mobile phone, it seems like these phone booths would cost more to keep up ( they are usually clean and recently painted) than they would be worth.
Whatever the reason is that the government keeps them around and in good shape, I appreciate it. The red phone booths, double-decker buses, black taxis, and the distinct whine of a police car are a few of the things that will live on in my memory after I have left this beautiful country.
Until next time,
