Cash at Handset

Cell phones have made the public phone booth irrelevant and caused many headaches for Superman who is in need of a new place for a quick change.  The eradication of the stands doesn't affect us much here in America, but in Britain, where the iconic red booths are part of their cultural identity, it's a sad comment on history.   
So as of a few hears ago, banks like BT have saved the red boxes from street extinction by converting them into ATMs.  They even kept the phone apparatus on the alternate side.   Why? Dunno.    I saw my first converted box in LLandudno, Wales.
That is, my first one in the UK- there is always this one in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
