Telephone box

It's been decades since I frequented a telephone box (I was a fairly early adopter of the mobile phone) - we used to use the one in my granny's hamlet (only facility it had, other than dilapidated stone buildings without rooves that the sheep sheltered in). 

They seem only to exist now for tourists to selfie in and for hookers to ply their wares (asses, tits, poom-pooms all decorated with stars).

It's surprising how quickly cell phones became almost universal. I saw my very first one, in an affluent person's car, in 1989 or 1990. Within ten years everyone had them.

It's true - very quick to catch on. But it's the convenience I guess.
