Phone Box Thursday: Mylne Avenue, Dollar

Here’s a well-kept phone box from Mum and Dad’s adventures.

Unlike a lot of phone boxes we’ve seen recently, this one looks freshly painted and well-maintained (the phone inside is still intact and seemingly in working order).

Interestingly, the ‘Telephone’ plate at the front has obviously been replaced in recent years – the Street View image shows a ’00s-era blue ’email/text/phone’ plate (for a while, these were installed in certain phone boxes along with basic computers that allowed you to access email – my student flat in 2003/2004 didn’t have internet connection, so I used the email-enabled phone box on the street corner all the time!).

Nice to see a phone box that’s still loved. Hopefully this one won’t be going anywhere anytime soon!
