No Human Callers
Telephone boxes continued - well, not all of them. There are 5373 payphone boxes in Scotland, but last year 451 of them did not have even one person making a call. The Western Isles had 40 boxes completely unused; Shetland 26 and Orkney 24. The march of the mobile has left these installations marooned. Full details of use and non-use are available through this Deadline account, here obviously featuring dead lines.
