Disney Imagineers went over the top on assembling a widely varied collection of working payphones. Normally across the restroom path from Cruella DeVille's trailer, when this photo was taken, the trailer had been temporarily replaced with a cardboard cutout Wall-E photo-op. They are located in the North-East corner of Disney's California Adventure.
Third Payphone from the left - The traditional American Phone Booth - blue "Superman" style. When the mild mannered character Clark Kent alter ego needed to become the Man of Steel, modesty prevailed so he ducked into the nearest street-corner Airlight Phone-booth equipped with privacy panels leaving his duds behind to emerge as "Superman". The Airlite style of aluminum and glass payphone enclosure is what most Americans think of as a "Phone Booth".
Directory enclosure/housing removed. These booths were built with a slotted shelf containing phone book cover/holders hinged at the back, near the top of the directory spine. When the directory was swung up and spread open it would lie open temporarily. If pressure was pushed at the phone book spine, or the covers were folded up, gravity would swing the directory back into the storage slot. There could be two or three covers side by side or one wide cover holding one or more directories. The plastic covers hinged at the top attached the directories to the shelf with a metal bar laid into the spine of a directory opened to half and locked to the top and bottom of the cover/holder.
Folding glass/panel door removed. These booths were built to shield callers from both weather and noise. When pushed from the inside at the center hinge the compression spring inside the end of the sliding track supporting the free end of the folding door would gently hold the pressure so the doors would stay closed.
Non traditional concrete pad. These booths traditionally were mounted by pouring concrete into a foot deep pit roughly square and slightly larger than the base. Then the "Diamond Plate" non-slip stainless steel floor/base with anchors welded to the bottom was placed into the wet concrete and leveled. When the concrete set, tamper resistant bolts fastened the booth to the base at the corners.

Credit card: All of the payphones in this bank will accept Credit/Calling cards with the built in magnetic-stripe/SmartCard reader.
