Enjoying this thread!
I'd just like to add that the old-fashioned iconic phone box here was exactly the same as the British one in looks only NEVER red. Cream, with green lettering.
Now I wish I had the old Tardis coinbox that used to be on the kitchen windowsill when I was young, for a closer look to see how authentic it was. Probably very, given it came from someone who'd worked in the BBC sound studios on some of the Dr. Whos and would have spotted a fake a mile away. But I just can't remember!!
