phone booth in plainview

driving through this shopping center in plainview this telephone booth caught my eye. I can't remember the last time I saw a phone booth, never mind such a fancy one. when I stopped to investigate I found it to be empty! who is the super hero that needs a phone booth to change in? perhaps with the proliferation of cell phones the people of this town decided to help him out.

I think I've seen that. I love the comment about a superhero, I wish I had that wit!

That's straight from the streets of London! A real anomoly on the streets of Lawn Guyland, that's for sure!

Hi there, and thank you for visiting my blog! This is my first time on yours, and I like what I see. Love these English phone booths! And here in a town about 70 kms north of Belgrade, artists painted horses a year or so ago, and I have some photos somewhere. Your "night out in front of the garage" photo made me homesick....we used to do this kind of thing in Penna. when I was a kid.

I'll be back!

LOL! Empty, huh? Yeah, I see fewer phonebooths in the city these days. Almost everyone has a cell phone

Double Hawk, thanks for the compliment!

Sally thanks for visiting. I enjoy your site tremendously.

Bibi, I like your blog alot as well. I have seen these horses around different parts of Long Island-I wonder if they are by the same artist.
Paz, I guess it's just a decoration, though I often wonder about that small percentage of people who don't use cell phones. what do they do when they need a phone?

Wouldn't it be cool to have a portable one for Chris as he gets his fire suit on to get in the jetvan???
