Phone Box Thursday: Grassmarket, Edinburgh

Today marks the first of a few Thursdays cataloguing the myriad phone boxes of the Grassmarket.

We’ll start with the one at the end of the street near where the gallows used to stand (see Wikipedia for info if you’re morbidly curious), which is accompanied by one of Edinburgh’s many police-boxes-that-have-been-turned-into-coffee-stands.

From a different angle. Fairly sunny for January!

It’s nice to see another part of the Old Town where the red phone boxes are still standing proud.  I suppose, compared to their surroundings, they’re practically brand new.

Update May 2022: added coordinates.  Accompanying police box still appears to be owned by the same café company!
