So common at one time and nice to see
a few around,Seems to need a paintjob
as it looks like Chocolate(or worse)
is smeared on the walls.
I remember in 1953 using a booth (as few people we knew here had phones)
and calling our family Doctor when
anyone was ill, You closed the doors
and a little fan came on, Imagine
now talking with privacy & quiet.
