Long Description:
DE:
Die Telefonzelle in der Adenauerallee wurde der Stadt Bonn am 01.09.1987 von der Stadt Oxford anlässlich der 40jährigen Partnerschaft der beiden Universitätsstädte geschenkt. Es handelt sich um eine Originalzelle vom Typ K6 ("Jubilee Kiosk") des Architekten Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, hergestellt von der Carron Company aus Sterlingshire.

Sie wurde tatsächlich einige Jahre lang durch die Deutsche Post als Telefonzelle genutzt, stand dann aber lange ungenutzt herum. 2010 wurde sie schließlich durch den Oxford Club Bonn mit Unterstützung lokaler Unternehmen renoviert und zu einem öffentlichen Bücherschrank umgebaut.
