Dial 88 ... well, if you can. With a missing receiver and other damage to this public phone, it is pretty useless. Does everyone have a mobile phone?

(In my hunt for numbers 1-99, I could add an additional eight numbers to my "88"....but that's cheating, don't you think? I'm allowed one number per shot, at least that's MY rule. ;-)

I think your rule is a good one, Dulcie, I'd play by it. The number of 10 year olds who have a mobile phone in Britain is twice that of any other European country. It says a lot about our perceived issues of safety for children and a whole lot more about the general affluence of people in Britain, despite what the media have to say.

@Richard: Interesting facts.....a good thing, and not too surprising I'd say. ;-)

A nice image for your number series, but seriously as far as public phone boxes are concerned, their number is up!

Diese öffentlichen Telefonzellen sind oft defekt, oder es fehlt das Kleingeld.
Sehr gute Verarbeitung.

Almost everyone has a cellphone. Surprisingly, I have seen a few people using pay phones. This is a superb capture and presentation.
