About a week ago, we made a trip to Charleston. They have a great Visitor Center where you can ask questions and get answers. We decided to take a historical tour in a small bus/van. It is a good way to get a feel for the city, to learn the history, and to see all the major areas. There is also a large parking garage right next door which makes it convenient so you don’t have to look for parking.
After the tour, we took ourselves to lunch at the French restaurant, Rue De Jean. It is located in a handsome two-story brick warehouse that was built in 1880. Inside there is rich dark wood, tin ceilings, and a delicious food selection.
Right before leaving, I asked directions to the restroom. When I saw the door, I smiled thinking maybe there was actually a phone booth behind it, and I could capture a photo of that door as well. No phone booth but a stand.
Are you old enough to remember these stands where they put one black rotary desk phone on it for all of the patrons in the restaurant? Makes you chuckle doesn’t it? One telephone for a room full of people.
Currently, if there are 100 customers, I’m guessing there are 100+ telephones not even counting the employees in that same room. 🙂
Do you remember the ‘old’ days when you left home without a phone?
