A couple of weeks ago when we were camping in the mountains, the hubby ran to the closest place to get more ice for our coolers. He snapped this picture with his phone:
Wonder how long before those are removed? How long has it been since you’ve seen (or used) an actual phone booth? Have a great week!

Our cats love hanging out in the garden window behind the sink in my kitchen. So much so, that I’ve slowly removed all my tchotchkes and put a leopard print kitty pad there so they can watch the birds through our … Continue reading →
Here we are, the final Tuesday of July! How’s your summer going so far? I understand the heat has been unbearable in areas – hope you all are staying cool! I’m keeping this short and sweet this week, since we … Continue reading →
I need to dig up a picture I took 5 years ago of one of those relics!
Happy Wednesday my friend!
Definitely should! Maybe you can earn some money from it (see Michele’s comment)…heh!! Plus it’ll be great to show future kids some day and impress them with how things were in the ‘old days’. 😉
I took a photo of a phone both about 5 years ago while in Texas. Crazy thing, I’ve sold it to ad agencies four or five times now. Turns out photos of phone booths are in demand.
Ooooh! Good to know, Michele! Next time we’re up there, I’ll bring my good camera and get a ‘proper’ shot. You never know! Of course, with Murphy and his Law stalking me, the phone booths will be gone by then…heh!!
Same here in London the phone boxes are disappearing quickly I rarely see anyone using them anymore they are all walking along the street tapping away LOL
Have a boothtasic week Stacy 🙂
The London ones are cooler – sorry they’re disappearing, too. Are they doing away with Dr. Who’s Tardis, too? 😉
I don’t know whether to smile or be a little sad that we snap photos of phone booths with our phones. I did that same thing because my cousin claimed they no longer existed, lol. I found some red ones but they weren’t the booths that you close. Now I’ll be on the look out for the actual Get Smart phone booth.
I absolutely agree, Jeanna! The irony wasn’t lost on the phone taking a picture of the phone booth…heh! They are slowly disappearing – when I went to Hawaii last year, one of the airports there had removed them and replaced them with charging stations for cell phones, which is a great idea, but I’m with you – I’ll be on the look out for the actual Get Smart phone booth! 🙂
Holy Cow! I haven’t seen one in like forever! Did it work? Last time I seen a public phone was a few years ago at an over pass on the expressway! Personally I think there should be some for emergencies. It happened to me once and I had to ask the manager at a Walgreens if I could use there phone because my cell phone was dead and I was in timbuktu somewhere! Go figure!!!!
