Phone Booth Cramming – LIFE Edition LIFE magazine documented the phone booth cramming fad from its inception. Here are a series of images by Robert W. Kelley, a LIFE magazine photographer who documented one “legs-out” attempt by a bunch of college boys in 1959:
"Phone Booth" - kids today cannot imagine a world without cell phones, without answering machines, and without texts. You could not instantly get in touch with each other, or leave a message if you missed someone from a pay phone.
I've never seen another British 'phone box like this one, seen in the village of Chelmorton, Derbyshire. Stone-built, and with green, rather than the traditional red livery, it is still connected to the network! Nikon F5, 35-80mm Nikkor Lens, Ektar
A blast from the past from Popular Electronics - 12-1958. The phone booth of the future designed by Bell Telephone Laboratories, will have a plastic bubble dome for maximum visibility. It will be installed in an indoor area, such as a railway concourse. [via Modern Mechanix]
Vintage telephone, from the 50s before that there was no curly cord. Just cord like on an iron.
Yep, used ones like this often. phone booth from the 50's & 60's. Remember when you'd be talking & the operator's voice cut in & told you to add more coins or else you'd be cut off. Always stunk when you ran out of coins & weren't done yet, but suddenly the connection was cut off.
