Phones that cost 50 cents to use & are out in public. They used to be 10 cents in the 70's & 5 cents in New Orleans.
When I used pay phones in the 70's, I was surprised that it only gave 3 minutes of talk time for 10 cents!

Once a part of the world's history, these things have become obsolete due to cell phones. More and more are disapearing and soon we'll all die from radiation going through our ears due to cell phones and cell towers.

Pay phones in the United States are usually tall, glass boxes with a door and usually have a telephone book with it. The cost can vary.
My cell phone wasn't working and the town took away all the pay phones, so I was stuck in my car.
