If, like me, you were at University in the 1970s you might remember the communal payphone. Wall mounted and with a flat top to pile up your 10ps on, there was always a queue for it and if the girl on the phone was having a tearful row with her boyfriend and feeding in 10ps every time the pips went, you all had to try to be really interested in the notice board on the other side of the room. And nobody wanted to have the room nearest to the phone because there were so many incoming calls and whoever was nearest was expected to answer them and run to fetch the intended recipient of the call.
However if you are either a sprightly young thing, not British, or didn't love away from home at the time then you won't have a clue what I'm talking about.
All of that came to mind the moment I saw this image from the DeeDee's Digis Vintage Media collection.
In keeping with the retro feel, I have teamed it with some very old Hot Off The Press papers, some of the last scraps from what was probably the very first kit that I bought when I first watched craft on QVC, about a zillion years ago. I coloured the image with Promarkers, but the green gas come out a bit blotchy. It was a brand new pen and I think maybe the ink hasn't distributed itself evenly yet, because I've never known that to happen with a Promarker before.
