If you move up and down the road on the Street View image linked above, you can see the phone box change back and forth from blue to red as the pictures update! I love a repainted phone box, and blue seems to be a very popular colour for them.
Interestingly this one has got a working phone inside, which is unusual for a repainted example!
I like the accompanying Wonder Woman scarecrow! (Scarecrows are a big thing in the surrounding village; there are lots of them sitting on walls.)
This phone box doesn’t have a phone inside, though it does still have all the posters advising how to use cash etc. As such, we wondered if it had maybe been moved for decorative purposes at some point. However, the Street View image linked above (as ever, taken during the Google cars’ only ever visit to rural Scotland in 2009!) shows it in the same place, so it would have been the community box originally.
And these ones in London are an eye-watering £45,000… but you can’t move or alter them because as K2 boxes they are listed buildings (thankfully). An interesting comment at the bottom of the article from the secretary of the Community Heartbeat Trust charity (the defibrillator charity), which makes me optimistic for more defibrillator boxes.
Mum took a photo of these George Street phone boxes for me the other week. Edinburgh is looking summery in a particularly Edinburgh way! (Grey skies included, but mainly because of the marquees that are out so that people can dine al fresco in the drizzle.)
