Photo of the Day 19

  “Here’s a quarter, call someone who cares.” 

Low and behold – we were driving past the Minden Park today and there was a pay phone! A relic. 

Take your children and grandbabies and let them make a phone call.

About Paige Shaw

Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago - I have become an eyewitness to and documenter of the world’s divergent cultures (108 countries and counting). Photographing vistas that take my breath away and connecting with everyday people. Watching my photography transform over the years has inspired me to do more, take chances and seek out the unknown. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, skier, scuba diver and gypsy. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso

      We watched a movie made in 1992 yesterday and they used pay phones to conduct business. I had commented to Bill that today’s kids won’t know what a pay phone is. So driving by one today was ironic.

    I date myself, but my first job after high school was collecting coin boxes out of payrphones in Detroit for Michigan Bell Telephone Company. I can relate to the phone in the park.

      We had Chappy over for dinner tonight and me made a comment about the work force it must have taken to empty all those coin boxes. You made that statement come to life. Thanks for sharing!

      I went to telephone operator class in my senior year of high school. We were taught how to listen for the amount of change that was deposited to make a long distance phone call amongst other things.
