1964 dated phone booth re-purposed as a mini-bar. Sacrilege?

Often phone boxes are "used" by people who frequent bars, so, putting the bar in the phone box prevents them using it as a toilet, in theory at least... ;D

I've seen GPO phone boxes turned into shower cubicles, bars, libraries, toilets, aquariums, and various other things, on one way, it's seen as sacrilege, but in others, it kind of honours them by keeping them in use and intact (mostly), even if not for their original purpose... :)

That's the kind of phone booth that I use to make the transformation into a superhero.  ;)

My Uncle Frank would've loved this re-purposed telephone booth!
