I felt bad that I'd missed 'booth'. I was talking to my daughter about it last night, saying I wished I'd a picture of Boothamgate in York (the street where the market booths were set up in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries... sort of suitable!). She said "Well why don't you take a picture of..." So this afternoon, I did.

Booth, Phone box at the Braaid corner.

That's a traditional red phone box - which is pretty much a booth, I reckon!

And yes - the phonebox and the letter box are fairly much in the middle of nowhere - there are about five houses within walking distance.


I think mine is more in the middle of nowhere than yours!

This is a competition for remoteness???

This is on the Armadale road about one third of the way from the Kyle to Broadford road junction.

The nearest houses are about a mile but there is actually a post box just out of shot!
Hee! Great minds indeed! This is in a tiny hamlet at the Braaid - near a crossroads, so I'd guess it was originally as much for motorists as for the locals - but it is more scenic than the one K actually suggested, which is near the bus-stop she uses most days.
How charming! All of our phone booths seem to be only memories now. With cell phones, I think one would be hard pressed to find a pay phone. I've not seen one in ages. I don't know where Superman is changing clothes these days.
We still have a few - our mobile coverage can be a bit patchy - although I suspect as they become non-functional they aren't being replaced.
LOL! I just commented about Superman in dougalsservant's post on this theme.
It was so funny that we posted those pictures right one after the other. We have known each other for many, many years, both live on British islands - and clearly think the same way!
Great minds think alike!
Your phone booths are so cheery. Ours, when we still had them, were dull and utilitarian by comparison.
The red design changed very little for most of the twentieth century - and cheerful is a very good word for them, now that you mention it!
