The telephone box

What to do with the telephone box, one of London's landmark?
They are no longer used for it's original purpose, so maybe they can serve another.
Stop and listen?
Individual in public space?

The red telephone box, a public telephone kiosk designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, is a familiar sight on the streets of the United Kingdom, Malta, Bermuda and Gibraltar, and despite a reduction in their numbers in recent years, red boxes can still be seen in many places and current or ex-British Colonies around the world. The colour red was chosen to make them easy to spot.


What is it used for nowadays?
Taking pictures: tourism
Peeing: vandalism
As a trash bin: vandalism
Eventually to make phone calls: original purpose
Snog!: : )

What can it be used for?
