This Day in Binghamton History: Eyesore on Courthouse Square (1952)


APRIL 29 – Need to make a call? You could do so today, in 1952, on the lawn Courthouse Square.

Today the first telephone booth was installed in the Square

Though of course this wasn’t the first telephone booth, the centralized location of it made Binghamton residents mad, calling it an “eyesore.”

And obviously, that eyesore is now gone, and we are now making calls whenever, wherever we want.
