Phone Box Thursday: Edinburgh Revisit

An update to this post today.

Added coordinates and spent some time enjoying the Google Street View history (click the little clock in the top left corner) of this box – the police box next to the phone box has been about five different colours in the last five years (as it’s been taken over by various different companies), and the phone box itself now appears to be an art installation. I’ll try and take some updated photos when I’m next in Edinburgh!

Phone Box Thursday: Surrey Street, Sheffield

One last phone box from Surrey Street just before the Sheffield half.

It was a bit difficult to get a picture of this one as they’d set up the line of pre-race portaloos next to it and so it was surrounded by queueing runners. I will most definitely be able to get a better picture if I go back on a day that’s not the Sheffield half.

Back to the archives next week unless I stumble across anything new!

Phone Box Thursday: Surrey Street, Sheffield

Here’s the second of the phone boxes I found en route to the Sheffield Half Marathon start line:

It’s one of several phone boxes lining this stretch of the city centre.

I have actually featured the Surrey Street boxes before, as Bill sent in a photo of the three of them a couple of years ago, but I’m doing new individual posts to feature my individual photos!

There’s also a bonus police box across the street…

What an interesting design!

Police boxes are normally outside the remit of my phone box posts – there are loads in Edinburgh, almost all of which have been turned into coffee kiosks, but I’ve never seen one outside Scotland before. Apparently they were green in South Yorkshire!

Another Surrey Street box next week.
