Icon not function

I work/volunteer at the British Museum. Out the front are a few phone boxes and often there will be tourists standing in the open door of the booth getting their photos taken. I don’t know if the phones in the booth work but I think the iconic nature of the boxes is of far more value that the functionality, specifically in a popular tourist location.

Here is a celebrity getting her photo in a phone booth. It works for everyone I guess…
