Quoted from Jason_Jehosaphat:
You set this up at a local park? How did you pitch it to them?
"How would you like a vintage phone booth standing in the park? A symbol of urban modernity, circa 1970?"
May I ask what it is about vintage phone booths that appeals to you?
Actually, back in 1990 when I bought the property, it was a cornfield with a swampy
amazon looking water hole down below out back surrounded with all scrub prickery brush.
Without boots, you couldn't walk down through the weeds without getting your feet wet (artesian springs).
Converting it to a vintage park has pretty much been my Summer hobby. After much work with a Friend's
crawler, the first thing I built was the pavilion, and while running the underground in cased electric, I
figured someday I may want to put a phone in it (never realizing I'd later get a phone booth), so I ran
a pair of 18 gauge wire in the incasement along with the 12 gauge. Years later after buying the phone
booth, I put that 18 gauge to use. The phone booth fits well with the rest..
There's more, but these pics give a pretty good idea. I have before pics (when literally a swamp), but on slides.
I had to throw in a pic of the 20' umbrella I acquired last year, which is somewhat a story of its own..
