Did you ever pass by something dozens of times, or hundreds or even thousands of times without noticing it? Then once you finally notice it, you wondered how you ever missed seeing it before, and you instantly have many questions about this new found mystery? For me, noticing this telephone on a pole on Highland Avenue across from Bretton Road was one of those moments. I must have driven by it thousands of times without spotting it. I don't normally walk past this spot, but recently I did, and that is when I saw it. It's a reddish color, which leads me to wonder if it was set up for some kind of emergency call or response purpose. I'd like to be a good investigative reporter and get the scoop on this mysterious telephone and report all about it here. In reality, that's not going to happen. Spending time figuring this out is just not high on my priority list of things to spend my time on. In reality its not on my priority list at all. Am I the only person who is really interested in this mystery phone? If any EYE readers know anything about this, or have any interesting theories about this, or have seen such phones in other parts of town, please submit a comment. Thanks!
