Fediverse friends and followers from around the world, I have a huge favor to ask!

If you are out for a walk or drive and you spot a payphone, would you mind sending me a photo of it? (DMs are always open) I will feature it on my #100DaysOfPayphone thread over on the birdsite and of course give you credit.

When I started this a couple of weeks ago I didn't realize all of my old photos from before 2018 are gone, which means the hundreds of old phone photos I had taken at one point are also gone. But maybe this opens an opportunity to see payphones from around the globe.

This could be a payphone that you spot in the wild that still exists (thank God there are still some of those out there) or it could be a photo you took in the past of a phone that may or may not be there anymore. But please, let me see your payphones!

If you have photos of other cool phone equipment or phones that aren't payphones, they won't work for the #100DaysOfPayphones thread, but I encourage you to send them my way as well. Phone related stories? I'd love to hear them! Please help me spread this around the world!

All payphones are acceptable, but I especially encourage you to send in any photos you have of payphones from countries other than the US or phones that are unique in some way. Also, PLEASE boost this toot and help me get this call for help out there! Thank you! 📞

@sudoneuron I have a ton of pics of chaotic telephone and electric wiring, but almost none of payphones.

Two that I found:

A vandalized Deutsche Telekom payphone, 2007

A very blurred photo of what probably was the last France Télécom payphone booth in Germany, 2009. Those existed due to the allied occupation after WW2, until 1992. That area used to belong to a French garrison, and the booth survived for quite some time in a backyard (never managed to take a good photo though).

@galaxis cool! Hit me up via DM if you would like with how you would like to be named in the credit for these on the bird site.
