+441628520160, Private Payphone, At the Odney Club, Odney Lane, Cookham, Maidenhead, West Berkshire SL6 9SR, UK

This is a private payphone within one of the guest lodges. Good to see payphones still being provided by the private sector. The club is used by the John Lewis Partnership for it's employees (partners).

+44128522506, Outside the Stanley Spencer Gallery, Kings Hall, Cookham High Street, Maidenhead, Berkshire, UK

Great addiction from the remove village on the Thames. This phone box is in the best condition, the best I've ever seen one in, and smells good (unlike the ones in London). You're unlikely to get an answer as not many people pass-by it or even use it. But found it interesting as it is the first time I've seen the phone box adoption notice. I took a picture of it and attached it here for all to see.

+442078373401, Defaced Red Phone Box, Outside 82 Richmond Avenue, London, N1 0NA

Although your unlikely to get an answer calling this one, I thought it post worthy. Some vandal took it upon them selves to spray paint each of the panels of glass out. This the nearest traditional Red Phone Box to where I live, but it is still a long walk to get to it. I would just love to have it within view of my place. I would look after it better than the residents of Richmond Avenue, that's for sure. They don't deserve this attributed to their street. Oh well...

+380372558113 & +380372558114, Phone Booth, Chernivtsi, Ukraine

Thanks to @rcknr from Twitter for this cool phone booth in the city of Chernivtsi, Ukraine near the border with Romania.

+15095259958, Old Fashioned Payphone, Walla Walla Post Office, Washington, USA

The phone booth you see here is one like I remember from when I was a kid. It’s a wooden booth with a sliding panel door, light, and fan. There’s a shelf under the phone and a shelf to sit on. There’s even a phone book. The only thing different is the phone — this one is modern; when I was a kid, phone booths like this still had dial phones.

The phone booth is in the outer lobby, adjacent to the post office boxes in the Main Post Office on 2nd Street in Walla Walla, WA. Don’t let the name of the town fool you — Walla Walla is a great little town with a vibrant Main Street (actually named Main Street). There are shops and restaurants, and enough wine tasting that you don’t need to get into your car and drive. The town is surrounded by vineyards and wheat fields. It’s located in South Eastern Washington state, south of the picturesque Palouse area and north of Pendleton of blanket fame.

A Great big thanks to Maria Langer from the An Eclectic Mind site. Thank you.
