1980 Fall Fashions and a Phone Booth

Both of these models look good in their new fall duds, but the real star of this photo, the quad phone booth. In a world where it is hard to find a phone booth anymore, it is even more difficult to find the variants that used to pepper the urban landscapes. I guess you can still find them sometimes in places like airports, but what you are seeing now is nothing compared to the massive public payphone areas that used to exist.

I hope you enjoy this photo and that maybe it will inspire you to take a moment to appreciate this dying technology.
