Can you spare a quarter?

The phone had been ripped out, though the booth remained. When my daughter was in high school, there was a country song about borrowing a quarter to call a lost love. It was a surprise to me that calls had gone up from a dime.

@By Marie: I believe the store was fully named "K-B Groceries." I know not what the K or B stand for.

I love the yellow! You definitely don't see these much at all anymore. I do remember when to make a call was a dime.

A great find, which leads many youth to ask, "What was this used for?" :-)
Unfortunately, I am too young to remember just a dime. Nice processing as well.
