We still have them but they are gradually being replaced.

Neat contrast between the old and very old. Now, if there were a Police box, you'd really have to worry about Doctor Who! :D

Nicely composed image Al.
I used to hate the cobbles and tramlines in wet weather in Auld Reekie on my racing bike !!!!
I see Beth beat me to the punch about the blue Police Box (The Tardus) !!!
So many photogenic places in Edinburgh for the nostalgia fan.
Pity it's only when you've gone from a hometown that you appreciate it's treasures.

That's strange.
I was just thinking that "Le Tour" was my numero uno followed by Red Bull Air Races, Moto GP, IAAF and Fina swimming although not necessarily in that order.
Looks like Contador in great form at the moment so will be hard to beat.

Love these phone booths Al...friend of mine has one in his home and the phone is operable. When the kids were smaller they would go in and call their friends. Only negative is the glass sides...Clark Kent can't rush in and change into his Superman uniform. ;) TFS
