Phone box on the side of a dirt road

I’m in love with this photo taken by Ian Caldwell of a random phone box on the side of a dirt road somewhere in the north of Kuwait. He took this photo sometime in the last 60s early 70s and if you look carefully you can see a couple of bedouin tents in the background.

No but we do remember the (rodent) exterminators in their orange overalls and the orange Crush cola trucks on their beat for home delivery.
This btw, is a million dinars click ๐Ÿ‘Œ

This is an epic picture. Ages go the NatGeo included a similar kind of picture of a phone box in the middle of the desert when they ran a feature on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Does the desert sand change its colour as you head from Kuwait into Iraq or Saudi ? Sorry I was too busy to notice as we fled Kuwait for Iraq during the invasion.

I do hope they do not knock off these phone boxes wherever they still might exist for old times sake. Sometimes you have no network on the cellular or worse still, itโ€™s low on juice and you are without a power bank and then the good ol phone booth becomes your saviour and a godsend
