As it is said "necessity is the mother of invention", one could conversely say that "invention is the surly teenager of what was once necessary". Hence, things like the charming red phone boxes standing idly like awkward hitchhikers on roadsides across the UK, having become obsolete in the age of cell phones. Or have they...
We came across this phone box in the nearby village of Cleish, who have reconstituted their old phone box into what is aptly called "Information Exchange". It held everything from Tom Clancy page turners to Rachmaninoff CDs. All free I believe. Genius.
