Magyar Phone booth

This Hapsburg era photo booth in Budapest may not be as iconic as Britain’s Red Telephone Box, but it is rather wonderful.

    What a beautiful booth! Better than a cell phone.

    It sure is!

    I like the incongruity of the beautiful, wooden exterior and the modern metal phone box and plastic telephone.

    i like the floor pattern and the Turkish (I think) influences in the arches as well.
