March 10th International Find A Pay Phone Booth Day

Get out your binoculars, put on your pith helmet and get out in the wilderness… today is International Find A Pay Phone Booth Day. The phone booth has been put on the endangered species list as they are becoming harder and harder to find. Once called a telephone cabinet, they were featured all over the place… every street corner, on the sides of buildings, sometimes even out in the middle of nowhere – but now, it’s hard to find one. The day was created by Bob Matthews from Rochester, NY in 2018, probably seeing a phone booth in bad shape, lonely and feeling useless along the side of the road.

How to celebrate – Try to find a phone booth. Take pictures of it if you find one. See how many people you can stuff in the phone booth you find.
