I can't remember the last time I used a pay phone. Before long, they will all be gone.

Hmmm...I just don't see phone booths, or payphones anymore. Nice capture.

Our town started pulling these down way before cell phone took over because they were too often used by drug pushers. All these booth should be removed since they're now just eyesores.

We don't have many public phones in the US any more, either. Most of the booths are gone, too. Time marches on....

It's a sad state of affairs when Superman has no change booth in Livorno any more.

Ours usually still have phones in them but I never see anyone using them anymore... I love alliterations.

Seeing a phone booth, my first thought is always Superman.

Abandoned... I wonder why they do not take it away...

It's a pity...and without telephone!
I hope the company can repair it soon.

I don't like places like this one but we see them frequently in our cities.
