Although there aren't that many left, Telstra Australia decided to maintain free payphone booths in selected locations throughout the country. Calls are free anywhere in Australia, and this is a public service for those without mobile phones. The ones I see are not vandalised.

Now out of use, but always green - to fit in with the village colour scheme.

Even littler and large


Phone and post boxes | A7 III and FE ZA 24-70 F4

Near Ozleworth, Gloucestershire

Looking on Google Maps the phone box is in better condition than it was four years ago; the post box crossed the road some time over the prior decade.

It has been a little while since I contributed to this thread, but having seen recent posts here I decided to take my camera with me to a haircut appointment in nearby Market Deepings. This takes me along the A151 and en route my first box is a functioning, but a little neglected one in Grimsthorpe:


The next village is Edenham and they have just given their functioning box a lick of post office red:


My destination, and just over the road from the hairdressers in Market Deepings is this working box:


as a small bonus this double postbox is only a few paces away:

Nice series of boxes in different "states of maintenance" Brian. The first one really needs a bit of TLC. On the other hand the double postbox seems well kept.


There's also a red phonebox at the DFDS terminal in Newcastle-upon-Tyne



Getting a bit closer you can see it's not in a very good state, rusty, fading and peeling paint, yellow crowns instead of gold, missing window and most importantly no phone



But inside there is a sign indicating the historic significance of these type of telephone boxes


So I guess it's just put there to "amuse" travellers passing through the terminal, either waiting before being admitted on the ship or waiting to pass the passport and customs check.
