Over Here, Clark.

As in most places pay phones are becoming less common in Saskatoon.  And especially rare is the good old phone booth.  But a few still exist, such as this one on 22nd Street and Avenue D North.

There's no door, presumably to reduce the chance of people loitering.  Loitering is the argument often given for getting rid of phone booths.  Not that there's much point these days.  As in most places you can't phone a phone booth here anymore, which is a much better way to prevent loitering.

This one is in very good shape, with no real signs of vandalism.  Perhaps this corner is too busy for the taste of wouldbe vandals.

SaskTel is a Crown Corporation owned by the Government of Saskatchewan.  It provides various telecommunication services, including local and cellular phones, Internet, and digital TV.

I'm sure many of you will get what the title of this post refers to.
