Phone Box Mirrors

Post by doctle »

Watching the Sweeny this evening and a guy was using a telephone box. I had forgotten about the mirror in the box. Anyone know why it was there and maybe why it was low? Ladies?

Not sure why the "mirror" is there. I'll have a little delve.

Thank you. I haven't seen that Thames TV graphic in years I missed the first 10 minutes of the Sweeney today Fred Dibnah was on at the same time.
