Dr. Who Time Booth

I passed a TARDIS on the streets of Burlington. Can you believe it? Time/Space continuum warped and I just about pissed my pants! It was standing in front of a book store on Jefferson Street. The owner says it magically appears on nice sunny days.

For all the Doctor Who fans traveling through South East Iowa. They need to stop at Burlington By The Book store at 301 Jefferson St. for a great photo op with a standing TARDIS.
