Nobody uses them but public phone boxes are still well loved. For a few weeks this summer while we host the Olympics, London has allowed a few of its traditional red phone boxes to be transformed by selected artists. It's a nice idea. London is one of the few cities where you can still find red phone boxes with working phones installed.
This is my local phone box, just outside Cambridge. Like many others around the country, It's been converted into a book exchange. Anyone and everyone is free to browse and help themselves.
The idea works very well, the box is always stuffed full of books of all genres. My friend above is holding a sporting biography that was published this year.
