Marash Girl's earliest memories of public telephone booths (those little wooden and glass havens of privacy in the midst of chaos) was from her years in Kindergarten when she and her two best friends (names now forgotten) would meet privately after school in the telephone booth on the corner of Walnut and Bowers Streets (before Marash Girl arrived at her father's store, Newtonville Electrical Co., Inc., 84 Bowers Street, in Newtonville, Massachusetts, the corner store in Uncle Vartan's brick store and apartment complex opposite the Newtonville Train Station -- yes, there was a beautiful stone train station on Bowers Street in Newtonville!)
Public telephones today? in this day and age, where else would you find public telephones, much less a public telephone in a booth, but at the Publick House (Sturbidge, Massachusetts) (See Marash Girl's post on New Year' Day at the Publick House.) Here's the rub. To the left of the Public Telephone Booth is none other than . . . an ATM machine! Can you see the M on the left of the telephone booth in the photo at the beginning of this post?
Please share are your memories of public telephone booths.
