BT2: Phone booths

While the trend most other places is for phone booths to decay and disappear, Brazil is obviously still putting up new ones. In smaller towns one often finds but a single phone booth, but otherwise two or three are mounted on the same pole - and as seen here one of them is usually mounted lower down on the pole to facilitate use for disabled persons. The phone booths are clearly also being used - even though in this case we are puzzled as to why the caller didn't chose one of the other two...

In central São Paulo there's still a couple of well-preserved phone booths from a somewhat different era.
