Letter box & Telephone boxes.

Browsing through my photos I came across some older digital ones of an old letter box and telephone boxes in a couple of places here in the Northern area of Tasmania.


Photo taken at Lake Leak in mid north/eastern Tasmania. My husband and I were just passing through at that time. A great use for unused telephone boxes.
Lake Leak is a fishing area with lots of little 'shack'.

  2. Wonderful photos! The telephone boxes are like our old pay phones here. They have become obsolete here too with modern technology!

  6. Just interesting at my place telephone boxes were grey and post boxes are red . But now when everybody has a mobile phone they are only old decorations in the streets. And what's more now people write text messages not letters. so just objects are definitely the past.

  10. I love these photos. When these were in use, no one would have believed that someday we would all carry our own phones in pockets!
