    Hello Sue. Truly a classic. We bought one of them new fangled portables last year and haven’t looked back. You can wander off to a private place and not be harassed by bowls of pancake batter and inflatable swords. I’d leave that one on the wall though, just for the children to use later on – revenge is sweet !

  2. Mary Said,

    How fun! We have a couple of oldies hanging around the house but not actually connected!

  3. Angie Said,

    That is a fabulous phone! I love the Old World. You know I do.

  4. Ann Said,

    In the spirit of Delurking Week…. I just wanted to say HI and that I think of you from Alabama.

  5. Edwinek Said,

    Made me think of Crocodile Dundee: “That’s not a phone, *this* is a phone!”

    What I really like is that these old phones still work. The core of the whole telephone network is still 70 (or more) years old technology. Wonderful.

  6. sue Said,

    I actually have two old phones, but some un-named boy dropped one and it has never quite been the same : after two minutes, it disconnects. Perhaps that makes it the perfect phone for me.

    This phone has a lovely history : the number on it is not our telephone number, but that of the company Han’s family set up right after WWII.

    *My* phone, from ’57 – a great year, as we all know- well, I just might try and find some old dodger that can make it work correctly once more.

    Hi Ann. Han gone a lot, too much to do, not enough time for me. Sorry.
