Could you call the USA from a UK phone-box in the late 60's.
Any idea of the call charges?
Could you 'reverse-the charges', or 'call collect' on international calls??
All help gratefully received etc etc
I can only tell you of the time my mother and her sisters made a call to the States around 1955 I think it was. They all crammed into the red box opposite my grandmother's house, booked the call and then had to wait for the operator to ring them when she had the connection to my aunt in Mississippi. How long the wait was I can't remember.
Call charges I can't help you with either as I was a young sprog standing outside the box as I watched in amusement, as four sisters and a mother with fistful's of small change, jostled for the opportunity to speak to my aunt.
Not much help maybe, but at least you know it was possible.
