The ghosts of communications past

Standing proud, but with only each other for company, I spotted these on my way home earlier today.


It got me wondering the last time I used a public post box, or a payphone. Or how many children today have ever used one? How times – and “technologies” – change.

    My son’s coin bank looks like this British phone booth. His kids might think the COINS are nostalgic.

    I parked my car alongside one such post box this morning then posted your birthday cards -oops, and then bought my runner beans from the next door stall. That’s what I call convenience shopping !

    Believe it or not, if your train is late with National Express in the UK, the only way to get a refund is by mailing in your original ticket with all your details…it makes you wonder about a future where sms+m-payment systems work seamlessly, in the “developed” world 🙂
