Don't call me Scarface

I like the way the municipality has left the scar on this rotunda unhealed; situated on the corner of Bootham and Marygate it marks the boundary of St Mary's Abbey. The old red telephone box sets this view off a treat; a pity that with the advent of mobile phones they are an endangered species in need of almost as much protection as the old stone.


  1. The phone box gives a sense of the relative size of the rotunda. I love the higgledy-piggledy roofline behind.

  2. I'd hate to see the red phone booth disappear! But I guess it makes sense given the times. They should at least leave them as historical significance!
