It is hard to make out what is happening in this photo.
It reminds me that in the 1980s when I had built a park for street people and was trying to find ways to make their lives more comfortable, I set up a system of telephone message banks. It was simple. The street person could establish a message bank over the phone. We had ubiquitous public phones back then. Then the street person could give the phone number to anyone who needed to call him back and that person could leave a message.
Apparently street people didn’t have much need for a message service. It was never used.
Maybe contemporary street people need a phone for outgoing calls since we no longer have public telephones.
On the subject of street people I have been asking this question lately: which number is greater, the number of street people in the U.S. or the number of people in State and Federal prisons?
The two numbers are about the same.
