It may run under the tech capital of the U.S., but the BART does a good job of keeping residents of San Francisco connected with old pay phones. Here’s a plus: These still feature the classic 1969 Bell System logo, one of my favorite symbols, designed by Saul Bass. #payphones #payphoneography #bart #sf #sanfrancisco #relics #urbex #bellsystem #reachoutandtouchsomeone

A faded, rusty relic in Red Hook Brooklyn for the long-defunct Clinton Cafe. This sign was likely hiding for years behind a modern retail replacement. #redhook #brooklyn #relics #signgeeks #oldsigns #urbanromantix #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #ghostsigns #ig_nycity #insta_america_americana #insta_america #oldschool #retro

You probably haven’t used or even seen a fax machine in years, but this neon anachronism in Morningside Heights harks back to a time when access to one was worth promoting in orange glowing tubes. #fax #neonsign #neon #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #relics #streetphotography #nycstreets #nyc #anachronism #retrotech #retrologist

This is the first batch of discoveries hidden in the forgotten WPIX vault that we are digitizing. From left: A documentary on Hitler we produced in 1958, a lost episode of “The Magic Garden,” a PIX documentary on Castro and Cuba and what could be some of the only surviving footage from the 1960s rock-and-roll dance show, “The Clay Cole Show.” (Check out the 1967 WPIX logo on the massive 2-inch tape.) We’ll keep you informed of our progress. #classictv #oldschool #retro #relics

Decades of pay phone stickers — New York Telephone, NYNEX, Bell Atlantic, Verizon — but no phone. At least this is a nice exhibit on the evolution of telecommunication branding, from the century-old Ma Bell iconography to invented names like Verizon. #phone #payphone #relics #subway #mta

One of the last Superman-style phone booths is hanging on in Tarrytown, NY.  It’s a real beaut, but the phone is gone. Duck in for a cell-phone call, or to put on your superhero costume. #phones #payphones #payphoneography #verizon #relics #retro #superman
