Ceci n'est pas un tardis

OK I don't know why I haven't shown this antique telephone booth before. It sits in the indoor market and serves no purpose other than ornamentation. I think I can remember it working many years ago as a phone box but that may be one of those false memories you read about in the papers. Something about a row when it was proposed to do away it also surfaces now I come to think about it. There's really not a lot you can say about an old empty phone box that doesn't even do time travel any more ...


  1. I think it's okay to preserve items simply for the sake of charm.
    There's an old red English phone box at a small arcade in Pasadena.

  2. the box was hidden in the old works dept in ringrose treet as the phone people claimed it was theirs and the council would not let it go we stored it until the work in the market was completed
