    Exclamation Red Phone Boxes

    Red Phone Boxes

    You know what they look like but do

    many exist on our streets? How many and where are they located? Is it true there are less than 5 on Liverpool's streets?


    ADVERTISING




    The challenge is to photograph

    or share the pictures you already have of our beloved red phone boxes on Liverpool's streets and the wider urban environment.

    The prize? A meeting

    meeting with this fella who frequents them often I've

    heard:

    There are probably more in the USA than there are over there, just about every

    British pub has one.
    You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.

    How about a thread about letter boxes as well? There's some boss ones dotted around

    Liverpool.

    It looks like the red telephone boxes have only been retained outside significant buildings, or in conservation

    areas, but it comes as a shock to hear there are so few.
    There are still 2 outside the former North Western Hotel in Lime Street.

    The red phone box was designed by

    Giles Scott who designed the Anglican cathedral. Portugal bought British telephone and post boxes of which many are still about.

    The one near the entrance to Fulwood Park (Aigburth rd) had its windows smashed when I passed it today.
    A later design red phone box (full door window) is in Moorfields (Dale st. end). Even this design is rare nowadays.

    This site mentions a red one being in the Cavern

    I want to take another one of that tunnel, but I got to be Ninja like so a bizzie car doesn't ask me to delete It.

    Think I found a spot do try.

    The first time I tried and I was close they never did nothing, It was the second time last August.

    I'm still trying to think why It's against regulations? Do they think were potential terrorists wanting to find weakspots?

    Are we not allowed to take pics of the Tunnel then? No wonder Plod gave me such a funny look as I was sat in the passenger seat yesterday
