The other day, FNY showed you one of the original Chinatown Deskey lamps. What’s not quite as remembered is that even the phone booths were also decked out with pagoda-esque ornamentation. This one was still around in the 1970s, as it sports a pushbutton dial instead of a rotary.
You can’t do this kind of thing these days — the local youth would see to that.
