Reply To: Old Phone boxes??
That’s very weird – I passed a scrapyard only today that had one of these boxes and thought the same thing. They are definitely worthy of preservation. Even if they are no longer needed, there is no reason why their doors cannot be sealed and they be maintained by communities in a manner similar to parish pumps etc.
Do they date from the 50s or earlier? Some have a 30s feel to them. Does anyone know what the booth on Dawson St was used for originally and when it dates from – I think I heard it was once used as a fire alert station or something.
