Rubbish Tuesday #26

Remember when...?

I took this when Bill was making a delivery in urban New Jersey.
It surprised me to see such a relic as an old working pay phone.

  2. Goodness, how can we forget so quickly? Are they still around? They need to be for security reasons, your phone has died or is forgotten at home.

  3. That's a surprise to me..I figured by now that they had all been snatched up to have as future "antiques".

  18. Great find! Pay phones are certainly a thing of the past. We had one on the town square for years and now it's gone.
