Square de la Tour-Saint-Jacques - PARIS-2018-44
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Wikipedia reports that Saint-Jacques Tower is a monument located in the 4th arrondissement of Paris, France, on Rue de Rivoli at Rue Nicolas Flamel.

This 52-metre (171 ft) Flamboyant Gothic tower is all that remains of the former 16th-century Church of Saint-Jacques-de-la-Boucherie ("Saint James of the butchers"), which was demolished in 1797, during the French Revolution, leaving only the tower. What remains of the destroyed church of St. Jacques La Boucherie is now considered a national historic landmark.

These have for such a long time disappeared in our towns that the photo beams me back some twenty years.
If you don't have a mobile with you there's no chance to get a phone call done. The very few left are all vandalized.
I was thinking much same thing when I came across that scene today and that’s what made me take the picture. I can remember a time when all of them would be being used at the same time with people on the street waiting for someone to finish so they could be next.
