Due to the increasing distribution of cell phones most people don't need telephone booths any more. Being a common mean of communication just 30 years ago, nowadays the telephone booths are mostly waiting to be used...

In Germany the old yellow telephone booths are continuously being removed due to a newer design.

These two facts made me think of the term forgotten place because I wasn't able to remember when I last used one of these yellow booths.
