    It looks as if The Last Phonebooth rose up from the netherworld to help our protagonist contact The Oracle.

    Cool. I wonder if that was taken somewhere around Hokkaido (Japan)...

    The world doesn't yet know what it's lost.

    John Udell's post seems relevant here as well:

    And then there was this: “Dial 611 for help.”

    Me: 611
    611: Hello, this is Steve.
    Me: I’m at the Pinnacles Visitor Center trying to send a message.
    Steve: Use the WiFi.
    Me: I can’t, it’s broken.
    Steve: Huh, that’s interesting. Let me see if I can reboot the router.
    And he did. So there you have it. The public phone still provides a valuable service. Its mission has evolved over the years. Nowadays, it exists to summon Steve the IT guy who can fix the WiFi by turning it off and on again.

    Works like a charm!

    Impressive loaf on that booth. You can find similar situations in the high Sierra after a big 6’+ dump. Once I saw an old VW beetle supporting a loaf that might have weighed as much as the car.
