On this past Wednesday evening Seamus called to tell me could deliver the UK phone booth Friday morning! Great news…but…where to put it? Fortunately, Neil Saxton knew exactly what to do and got to work leveling the space between the donkey cart and the flag pole in front of the Museum. First job was to pull out all the aloe plants (aloe, aloe, aloe ..some (UK) Dr. Who humor).
Luckily we had some new pavers left over so they were put down, leveled and then filled in with soil. On Friday morning the Olympic sky track came with the phone booth, after a bit of maneuvering it was gently put into place. It weighs about 500 pounds and is cast iron. Most of the hard work to restore has been done by sandblasting, so now we just have to get some replacement glass, cherry red tele paint, and telephone window signs. Then wait for a visit from …. Dr. Who!
