It’s been a long time since payphones had their heyday, but they just might be making a comeback if the new ones we’re seeing on Yuyuan Road are any indication.
They offer a modern twist on the decades old communication medium that went obsolete with the invention of cell phones.
Now instead of standing testament to a bygone era, they offer wifi and phone charging outlets to help the modern citizen. The fact that they are so easy on the eyes is definitely a benefit!
The orange phone booths add a shining touch to the peaceful Yuyuan Road.
