Rikstelefon Phone Booths

A few old Rikstelefon phone booths can still be found in Stockholm. 
Rikstelefon was a brand of Televerket, which was a Swedish government agency responsible for telecommunications from 1853 to 1993.
Rikstelefon means that the telephone could connect between cities (i.e. long-distance).

These last two are located in Stockholm's open-air museum

Some of the old phone booths have been repurposed for other uses, for example, one was turned into a mini library
