    If you can find one of the old wood and glass ones used indoors, anywhere, let me know. They are worth a lot !
    My grandson didn’t know what I was talking about when I mentioned the old rotary dial phones.

    How about the old crank ones…we even had party-lines! No privacy- can you imagine what those youngsters would think of that?…..no, wait a minute- they would love it- automatic social media network!

    Saw one of those not long ago, not too far from here, been out in the weather for a while. Thought about picking it up, can’t remember why I didn’t.

    Yep, Superman has to really travel a long way to change his clothes now-a-days….

    When I worked in northern California, two little towns in the Salmon Ranger District were only reachable by the pay phone booths in the campgrounds. No phone service, no line electricity. The Forest had eight repeaters for radio communications, but the rugged terrain and lack of people meant no one was going to put up dozens of cell towers.

    Now Superman is limited to changing in revolving doors! (Very bad special effect)

    It’s even rarer to see one that still has the phone in it.

    We had one of those with 14(!) parties on it, and 7 of those were boarding houses, so it rang all the time.

    The little corner grocery store in my neighborhood had one of those gorgeous walnut phone booths with the brass “Bell Telephone” plaque standing next to the magazine rack, (later an ice-cream freezer). When the owner died, his wife eventually closed the store. She said she got $3000 for the booth. What a beautiful piece of Americana!

    I’m surprised that no one has mentioned that the phone booth is where the expression, “dropping a dime,” came.
    When phone booths cost 10¢, dropping a dime on someone was when you “dimed them out” to the police.
    Here in backwards Lebanon County, PA, there’s still a fully-functioning phone booth outside a local supermarket.
