Great Britain: Recycling in English: Phone booths become libraries and espresso bars

Rejected phone boxes can be accepted in the UK. Their second life is often strange: they function as a library, recovery center and espresso bar.

Once released from duty to work, there are people who do bizarre things, for example, raise barefoot in Kilimanjaro to name a casual example. But it also applies to things. What they are, what is possible with them, often they no longer have to do anything, but are allowed to do everything, in other words: no more practical control. This takes us to the topic: Phone booths. Originally built for one purpose only: Calls. But they are no longer needed because most people carry their phones with them all the time. So the number of telephone booths is declining globally.
