For some of the younger bloggers, I could have almost used this for the “what is it” theme! This is a PAY PHONE. In the old days, a person would put coins into the tiny slot at the top left corner of the phone. These coins would activate the phone and the person could then call another person and talk for a very short period of time, about enough time to say “wa sup”! Actually, I found this pay phone just outside the visitor’s center in the Smokies. Cell phone service is very spotty throughout the park and pay phones can still be found at various points along the routes. I couldn’t resist snapping a quick photo….no telling when I might find another one!
