‘Talking Poles’- De Praatpaal

Because of the use of the mobile phones, there is no longer need for emergency phones along the highways of The Netherland. The Rijksoverheid has decided to get rid of the typical yellow ‘Talking Poles’. With that, the landscape of the Highway will change forever. The nice and friendly looking poles, also known as Rabbit Ears, are no longer our hope in times of car-trouble. I decided to photograph them just to give them a proper goodby after almost 60 years of serving us.
