Back in December 2017, I was walking down towards Holborn (passed the British Museum) keeping an eye out for phoneboxes (like I usually do). I was in London on a visit after being away for a few Years. Knowing the area well I knew this phonebox pretty well and used to pass it regularly.

This one phonebox stopped me in tracks. Something that's not happened lately. There was a man sitting at a desk within it! I had to stop and see what this was all about. Turned out that the phone box has been turned into a mobile repair workshop servicing the mobiles of busy people living and working in this part of central London.

Ironic that an old classical phonebox has been turned into a service station for the very thing saw its own demise.

Robert, the technician sitting therein his warm and cosy phonebox with a whole manner of tools and replacement parts, was working on a phone that very moment.

You can give him a call or perhaps more appropriately send him an email at telling him that PayPhoneBox put you in contact.

Here's more about LoveFone on their own website:
