Red Telephone Box-Did You Hear?

Hopping in the ol’ Telephone Box to give ya a ring. This is Great News! Wait till you hear this………

The beloved Telephone Box has found some pretty interesting ways to stay in the neighborhood. She can still stay in her beloved community,bringing people together and offering several new services. Not only did she help you to make a call all these years, but she is still helping you morning,noon,and night each day of the week. in different ways. 

Like the popular phone booths,the telephone box has found itself being removed and sits decaying in a “field” of  fading red.  Away from the world of gossip,laughter,tears,people’s everyday life.
