Typical Cambridge, long with a pop of red. 1992 was the peak year for telephone boxes with over 90,000 in the U.K., sadly they are in decline. 33,000 calls a day are made through them but many never see a single call.
In areas where telephone boxes are not being used, many local communities have transformed and preserved phone booths by buying them for £1 from BT under the Adopt a Kiosk scheme.
So far, more than 4,000 kiosks have been repurposed as mini-libraries and art galleries or to house defibrillation machines, information centres, shops and exhibitions.
