The question is, will the busy signal also be preserved?

The question is, will the busy signal also be preserved?

In a moving ceremony, the public phone on New York Ave, at the bus stop in front of the State police station, was designated the last standing public phone in America and placed on the historic register. Public phones, or phone booths as they were once called by old people, were used in the previous century when people had to stop walking and put currency in a slot to make a phone call. People got their money back if they got a “busy signal,” which faded into extinction in 2004.
