Hartford Pay Phone Contest: Pay Phone #14

After an earlier submission was disqualified for not working we have found pay phone #14 in the Sad City Pay Phone Search. This working pay phone is showing it's age but still holding on. Located on the corner of Albany and High, #14 holds a certain place in the heart for Sad City. Not only does this corner contain Hartford's version of the flat-iron building, but rumors have it that in the mid 1990's Sad City staff members may have known people who would drive out from the suburbs to buy multiple 40's when the building was painted yellow and the store was named El Pocitodulce (can still see sign in picture). A great pay phone find! Email me your pay phone finds!
