Superman in Phone Booth

Clark Kent has changed into Superman inside an old phone booth in front of Jim's Frostie Treats ice cream shop.

[Michael Hacala, 05/15/2020]

The booth provided public telephony services from that spot since the late 1960s, when Jim's Frostie Treats was a Dairy Queen. Superman has occupied the booth for much of the 21st century.
