    The composition (shapes, light, tones) is very attractive. It's so spare, that I have to wonder whether it is still working. The legal profession dealt a death-blow to telephone booths by successfully holding telephone companies responsible for injuries sustained by users when vehicles crashed into the booths. The cost to make the booths "crash proof" could not be justified, so the booths began to disappear. Cell phones finished the job.

    That is so interesting Richard ! This particular telephone booth is in working order in Joliette, Quebec, owned by Bell Canada. We still have booths around like this even here in our own town. Having said that, and reading your comment, the booths are located it seems in an area where a car or other vehicle could not crash into it. Thanks for all the great info !

    A wonderful shot for the theme.. I am glad that there are still some phone booths in existence..they certainly came in handy years ago when one needed to make an emergency call...I remember the only time using a phone booth in another town from where I lived was when I was a young teenager and one of my best friends had an accident when she fell and broke her front tooth out at the roller skating rink, where my friend's brother dropped us off...My mother picked up her parents and came to our rescue:)
