Photo: A hint of Great Britain in North Douglas

Posted: Monday, July 07, 2008

Simon Ridgeway poses Saturday with his customized mailbox and British-style phonebooth. Ridgeway, a British citizen and mechanic for ERA Helicopters, wanted something eye-catching to keep him from driving by his property on North Douglas Highway. He built the telephone booth from pictures. He keeps a chair inside the booth to use his cell phone, where he says he gets better reception than in his home. Ridgeway says his friends are expecting him to build a pint-sized Big Ben to add to his collection.
