Also, the really neat thing is that this exact payphone is featured on the site already. Follow this link to check more pictures and it's number.

+15734459043 & +15734459047, Payphone at Break Time Gas Station, 2101 W. Ash St, Columbia, MO, 65203

Across the corner from the other payphone +15734499415, across the street from Snapper's bar and near other bars, this phone is full of static when someone answers and you probably won't be able to understand them, it will probably remain this way until it is eventually removed.
If you wanna try calling, the best time to call is Thurs-Fri-Sat nights, particularly when the bars closing around 1AM Central Time.
Big thanks to NOMADCOWATBK for this one.

In any case I got questioned by security as to way I was taking shots of the payphones. Hadn't been the first time I've been asked.

Walking on further down my normal route to work only a few metres on from the before mentioned phone box, I take the time to crossover the road to see another phone box that I normally ignore. Just to see if it's handset is intact?! And guess what, exactly the same thing has happened to this one's handset. Wires spraying all over the place.
It is an interesting subject this, the vandalising of payphones. They only stand to offer the public a service, a means of communication. Why are they subject to so much hate? It is a subject that I will put more thought to and something you will see more posts here on about.

Bowes & Bowes was a bookseller and publishing company located at 1 Trinity Street, a corner position at the junction with St Mary's Street. It has a claim to be the oldest bookshop in the United Kingdom, with books having been sold on the site since 1581. The Bowes & Bowes shop closed in 1986 and it was taken over by Sherratt & Hughes, which itself closed in 1992. Since then, the site has become the Cambridge University Press bookshop.
Back to the payphones. They themselves don't see much use. But the payphone is heaving with the rush of students to make lectures. The good news is the ring loud and can be heard from outside the payphones, the issue is,.. will anyone have time to stop?!

Spotted this on twitpic by a user called bassena. It's apparent that the booth fell from the pillar. Never the less makes for an interesting shot.
