Wordless Wednesday Link-Up: Technology Artifacts


By on 3/13/2013 10:50:00 AM

My middle daughter has been searching our house for technology "artifacts" for her the growing "museum" in her school library.  Over the past few weeks, an old digital camera, a video camcorder and an "original" iPod have found their way into her museum stash.


Then, she saw this....




While we couldn't take the actual payphone--she certainly classified it as a relic and plans to submit a few photos to the school's artifact gallery.  How many payphones do you see these days?  My youngest daughter was actually a little speechless by the concept of "paying quarters" to make a phone call!


What left you speechless this week?

  1. Almost as much of a relic as the dime needed to put into it :)

  2. I can't even remember the last time I saw a pay phone? Do they still take quarters? I'm betting loonies now (for us Canadians).

  4. That is too funny! There is a restaurant by my work that has an old payphone booth. They removed the payphone and put a sign up that says Cell Phone Booth. Stopping by from the Shh... It's Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

  10. You know what, that is so true: I hardly see payphones around anywhere anymore. Food for thought...
