Good News: #TBT Pay phones

There was a time when they were the staple of every street corner. But now, a payphone is but a rusty relic from an era when waiting was ok.

Instead of on every corner, now there's a phone in every pocket. No one needs a payphone anymore, leaving the steel face skeleton to wither in that lonely blue box.

One by one, payphone proprietors have pulled them up. I drove around town all day and the few I found had long since been victims of vandals.

It's something you could easily forget about, until you stop for a moment to remember.

I did finally find a pay phone and made a very important call. Check out the video portion of the story to see and elusive piece of history.
