Love it ... flashbacks to my sister's ornate, golden, cradle phone! Wish I'd thought to get a pic of that one.
Oh that must be an heirloom by now! I really miss those.
Ah, the days of long distance only after 6 p.m. and everyone talking over each other trying to say as much as possible for least money. This looks like one of those heavy phones with a fabric covered cord. Weapons almost. I'm convinced the sound quality was better. I love that you've focused on the dial, and that blank space where the phone number would go, typed on a little paper insert. Yours or spotted somewhere?
