Wow!

On today's walk I ran across a glass and metal enclosure that must be an information center of some kind. Someone had Googled everybody's telephone number and address then printed them out to make a book...they used cheap paper too.

First the image, then my ideas:

I was wondering if it's possible to put a telephone in there? Now stay with me, I think it has possibilities!

  • A person can make a phone call out of the weather
  • It would be a private call because there is a door you can close
  • They could be installed all over town
  • We could start small and charge 5¢ for local calls then once people are hooked keep raising the price!


I think it might work out $$$

Hey I think you might have a good idea. People love going back to the old days of telephones, multi conductor wire for a single phone and you get to pay a monthly fee for each phone also.

If it was built in the last 10 years don't expect it to work right.

There is someone a few years ago, who actually is doing this, sort of, he has the payphone out in the front of his place of business, and he maintains the payphone, and he actually had to get permission from the city in which he lived.
