Prairie Modernist Noir 7 (2018 / 2020)

This is one of the photos early in the quest.

The booth is in St. Anne’s MB. Dan at the MTS had told me to look for Captain Corky’s Cafe. Late modernist facsimile it is, under new management. It’s now the Cordon Bleu. The roof of the phonebooth appears to be uncharacteristically slanted—appears to be. The tall conifer sways as if the jet stream is passing through the front yard.
